It’ll be a little while longer before local kids tinker the day away at the Scott Family Amazeum.

Museum officials this week announced their facility will remain closed while they continue to evaluate processes and procedures to keep visitors safe.

From the press release:

The safety, health, and well-being of our members, guests and team will always be our top priority, and is the critical factor in any decision on how and when to reopen the museum to the public. The Amazeum is founded on creating interactive, hands-on experiences that integrate the arts and sciences. Amazeum experiences are designed to bring a creative, curious, community together to discover, wonder, explore, and learn with each other.

COVID-19 challenges our ability to provide those moments that they have come to expect at the Amazeum in a safe, healthy environment.

We continue to prepare and proceed toward reopening with an abundance of caution and will reopen once all precautions are in place to make the Amazeum a safe environment for families to play and learn.

The museum temporarily closed in March, but has been creating educational and interactive videos online to continue to engage with the public.

The facility has received a thorough cleaning and sanitization of its exhibits and props since the closure, officials said.

No decision on when to reopen has been made, but officials will make that information known as soon as it is available.
