  • Playhouse to Reopen Tuesday, August 17th

    It’s been a whirlwind of activity here these last few months as we renovated our space to be as inviting as ever but with a bright, new look. We can’t wait to show it to you when we reopen on Tuesday, August 17th! Check out our Facebook page to sneak a peek at all the changes, including the new climbing wall mural painted by our executive director, Kathy Parham, pictured below.

    The Children’s Playhouse will reopen to the public Tuesdays-Saturdays starting August 17, 2021. In an effort to allow everyone to safely play, we will be doing timed ticketing with time slots starting at 9:30, 11:30, 1:30, and 3:30. We will add more options as soon as safely possible.

    With our updated knowledge of the virus and resulting safety recommendations we will be requiring masks for all adults and children aged two and up. If you would like tips and encouragement for helping your child wear a mask, please watch this helpful video from Riley Children’s Hospital. https://www.childrensmuseum.org/tips-for-wearing-a-mask

    The past year has been stressful for everyone, especially for children who need time to play, explore, and discover in order to stay mentally and physically healthy. With this in mind, we have spruced up the Playhouse and added exciting new exhibits to allow our children and adults the most joy filled play experience we can offer. It’s been hard to be closed so long but we hope you’ll find it worth the wait!

    We Will Be Playing Safely! 

    • The Children’s Playhouse is following the latest CDC and American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines based on our size and space limitations. 
    • The Children’s Playhouse will open with reduced capacity so you can enjoy a safe and fun visit with family and friends.
    • We will be wearing masks and washing our hands. All visitors to the Playhouse age 2 and over will be required to wear a mask.
    • Outside air will continually be recirculated into the building, our windows will be open as weather allows, and we have installed an additional IQAir Purification System, as well. 
    • Our already robust cleaning practices have been further enhanced. Cleaning will happen before, during, and after your visit.
