COVID-19

  • Mid-Michigan Children’s Museum Public Health Statement

    MMCM will be temporarily closed until further notice in response to COVID-19.

    Though we may be closed, you will see new opportunities coming from our museum that provide the chance to engage students who are out of school and staying home in “Play & Learn” fun. Digital activities and other technology-based learning and entertainment opportunities will be available to our region and beyond via our website and social media. From your home, you can try new activities that aim to engage and educate you and your kids about the wonders of our world – just as our galleries do. Follow us on Facebook for daily activities and visit our Play At Home Catalog for a complete list of projects, crafts, experiments and more!

    Our goal during this time is to assist and support families in our community and sustain our students’ intellectual curiosity as we implement the directed policies aimed at “flattening the curve” of the Coronavirus spread. This is a rapidly-evolving situation and we appreciate your patience while we process this unprecedented disruption to our operations.

    During this closure, our staff will be working safely and diligently to make updates and improvements to our museum so that when you return, our galleries are in their best shape! Our Museum Experience Coordinator has been working hard to make many improvements throughout the museum. To see the updates we’ve made, click here

    The safety of our community, guests, staff, volunteers, and all who enter the Mid-Michigan Children’s Museum is our greatest priority. We are following guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)  and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services updates, information, and recommendations. We are also monitoring our local emergency management agencies and other peer institutions as we proceed.

    Recommended Precautionary Measures:

    • Wash your hand frequently with warm soapy water for as least 20 seconds.
    • Cover your mouth with tissues (or your elbow when a tissue is unavailable) when you sneeze and discard used tissues in the trash.
    • Avoid touching your face.
    • Keep your distance. Stay at least 6 feet from other people. Instead of shaking hands or giving a hug, try waving or taping elbows.
    • Stay home if you are feeling sick.

    We thank you for your understanding during these extraordinary times. We look forward to playing together again soon!
