A New Way to Play…

Welcome back! We are excited to open our museum on Tuesday, July 14, 2020! We are committed to providing a healthy and safe environment for our visitors and staff. We are in this together and we require our visitors to follow these important COVID-19 Safety Protocols. Please read through this entire page before you visit the museum. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you!

  • Children must be with an adult at all times.
  • Maintain proper social distance from others not in your group or family (6 feet).
