Boston Children’s Museum to Temporarily Close

In response to the resurgence in COVID-19 cases in Massachusetts and to ensure the continued wellbeing of its relatively small staff along with the continued safety of visitors during the holidays, Boston Children's Museum voluntarily closed to the public on December 14, 2020. Subsequently, Boston announced further requirements for closing museums, cultural institutions, and other businesses that remain in effect. When these requirements are ended the Museum will announce its plans for reopening. All advance ticket purchases affected by the temporary closure will be refunded. Since re-opening in July, the Museum has been extremely safe for visitors and staff and has had no Museum-based COVID-19 transmission and took the step to close as a precautionary measure.

As when it closed earlier this year, the Museum has not presently closed the building or shut down Museum operations. Museum business continues with staff working remotely and some socially distanced in the building. With the short-term closure, staff are working on virtual programming, grant-based project work, and staying connected with the many community endeavors the Museum is a part of.

The Museum will update any changes to its plans on its website and social media channels.
