covid-19 health & safety
It’s time to play and learn at the Children ’s Museum of Evansville!
(UPDATED 8/2/2021) Beginning Tuesday, August 3, the Children’s Museum of Evansville will require masks for all guests and staff with the exception of children under the age of 2. This includes those who are vaccinated, as well. Masks are optional while enjoying our outdoor 5th Street Boardwalk exhibit.
The change in masking policy comes due to new CDC guidance and recommendations of the Association of Children's Museums. Our goal is to assist in protecting all guests from our wonderful community, especially our young children. A mask does not limit play or learning.
We appreciate your continued kindness and understanding during this time as we navigate the ever-changing waters of health and safety with COVID-19.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected].
