TUCSON, Ariz. — The Children's Museum Tucson is ready to welcome visitors back after closing its doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic earlier this year.

According to the museum, limited admission for members begins on Oct. 31 and public admission starts on Nov. 11.

The museum is taking play-based learning outside with activities that include arts, crafts and games. Visitors age five and older will be required to wear a mask.

“The Museum’s social distancing measures and cleaning protocols are in place to ensure visitors stay safe while getting the chance to stretch their wings with some engaging play,” Van Alsburg said.

The museum's hours are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursday-Sunday, and admission is $9 per person.

Four timed play sessions will be available each day, with a limit of 50 visitors per session.

“We are overjoyed to welcome children and families back to the Children’s Museum!” said Executive Director Hilary Van Alsburg. “With new exhibits and activities, kids will have their curiosity and creativity sparked!”
