On the side of caution

The Boston Children’s Museum has announced that they have voluntarily closed due to COVID-19 concerns.

In response to the current 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 will voluntarily close to the public through January 7. The closure is effective beginning Monday, December 14. All advance ticket purchases affected by this 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 takes this step as a precautionary measure.

While disheartening during this time when the Museum normally welcomes thousands of children to enjoy festive exhibits and programs, we are confident that this step is in the best interest of our staff and visitors.

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

Last week, the ICA announced it was also closing due to concerns with COVID-19.
