COVID-19

  • Mid-Michigan Children’s Museum Public Health Statement

    Your Mid-Michigan Children’s Museum is temporarily closing our museum until further notice in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

    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 those who are 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. Please visit our At-Home Play & Learn Fun post or visit our Facebook page to learn more.

    Our goal 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.

    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 and implementing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines 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. Instead of shaking hands or giving a hug, try waving or taping elbows.
    • Avoid contact with people who are experiencing respiratory symptoms.
    • Stay home if you are feeling sick.

    We thank you for your understanding during these extraordinary times. Most importantly, take care of yourself and your loved ones. We look forward to playing together again soon!
