We are first and foremost a Cape Cod museum and the needs of our local families are always our priority. Over the last couple of years we have revamped our business model to be less reliant on outside funding/grants and more on admissions and memberships. This model enabled us to turn around a struggling museum and even set aside for the first time a rainy day fund. Who could have imagined that there would be a monsoon almost immediately.
Unfortunately the timing of this closure could not have been worse as we earn enough revenue during the summer months to carry us throughout the year. As a non-profit, we do rely on the generosity of our local businesses, patrons and friends and today we would like to ask you, our members, to help if you can.
We will continue to do our part which is to provide the best possible play and educational experience for your family. We have been successful with our new COVID procedures and we will continue to work tirelessly at maintaining those new protocols. Additionally we continue to offer reduced admissions for our military families, children in foster care and families who receive assistance. No child should be turned away for an inability to pay, all children need to play.
If you have ever considered a membership or you are up for renewal, now is the time to make that purchase. We know that some sectors of our population have been devastated while others have not or were only mildly affected. Please do what is best for your family and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly.
