Our mission at Adventure! is to create an environment dedicated to the spirit of adventure, and to help kids grow as artists, explorers, and innovators. Pursuant to this mission, Adventure! has a well-earned reputation for cleanliness and for helping families stay safe and healthy.

Our Commitment to Health and Safety: Our staff is dedicated to helping your family stay healthy and play safely. We regularly clean and sanitize Adventure!’s surfaces and high-use props multiple times per day.  Increased cleaning rounds, scheduled small-group play sessions, and fresh batches of props for every session are some of the changes we are making to help us continue to ensure the museum is one of the cleanest places for your family to play when we can reopen.

How Our Visitors Can Play Their Part: Adventure! exists for our visitors, and we rely on you to help us maintain high standards of health and safety! Upon reopening, masks will most likely continue to be required for anyone over the age of 2. We will likely also require shoe covers or non-slip socks while in the museum, since so many of our visitors play on or crawl on the floor. We have masks, shoe covers, and non-slip socks available in case you arrive for your play appointment without them.

For your safety, and the safety of others, kindly stay home if you or your child are experiencing a fever with cough, shortness of breath, or other flu-like symptoms. This may include allergy symptoms for the time being, unfortunately, as it will be impossible to discern illness from allergy. We will check temperatures at the gate. If a visitor appears noticeably ill with flu-like symptoms or has a fever of 100.4 or higher, they will be asked to return home for the well-being of all guests.

Hand-washing Guidelines: We encourage visitors to sanitize their hands upon entering and exiting the museum. Hand-washing with soap and water is more effective than hand sanitizer, but to ensure everyone has ample opportunities to clean up, Adventure! currently offers the following:

• eight hand sanitizing stations (five more than before)

• six hand wipes stations

• new access to the hand-washing sink near the Art Lab

• and, ever since our expansion in 2018, two regularly-cleaned bathrooms for hand-washing

 

It has been painful to be closed for so long when we know how many in our community depend on us for respite and play.  If you have questions or concerns about anything, please don’t hesitate to email us at AdventureChildrensMuseum@gmail.com

Best,
