a healthy visit
We continuously work to provide a safe place for children and families to explore and play. Following the public school closures announcement on March 13, National Children’s Museum determined it would close until further notice as a precaution against the coronavirus (COVID-19). In response to the growing concern about the potential impact of COVID-19, National Children’s Museum will follow the instruction received by the DC Health Department, and DC Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency with regard to operating. We also continue to monitor the CDC for updates.
Once reopened, we will continue to provide hand sanitizers throughout the Museum, and maintain rigorous cleaning protocols of the exhibits and surfaces throughout the day and overnight. All visitors must always be healthy to enter the Museum, and we will be happy to accommodate exchanges for our sick guests.
general guidelines and recommendations for guests:
Avoid touching your face, especially your eyes, nose, or mouth.
Wash your hands often with soap for at least 20 seconds.
Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer provided throughout the Museum.
