Local children’s museum the Scott Family Amazeum will reopen to the public this week.

Officials announced the facility will reopen at noon on Saturday, July 18 with new processes and procedures in place for safety.

From the announcement:

The safety, health, and well-being of our members, guests and team are our top priority, and is the critical factor in the decision to reopen the museum to the public. We modified and enhanced processes and procedures to maintain and sustain the high-level of cleanliness our guests expect and mitigate as much risk as possible to COVID-19 by aligning with guidance and directives provided by local pediatricians, public health officials, and the Centers for Disease Control.

The museum will require masks inside for staff, and guests ages 10 and older. Kids ages 2-9 are also “strongly encouraged” to wear masks. Entry to the museum without a face covering will be prohibited, and masks will be provided to guests without face coverings.

Cleaning and disinfecting will take place at planned closures during the day.

Capacity will be limited through the use of timed entry tickets, officials said, and guests and members must purchase and reserve tickets for time slots online (members are admitted free).

Additional procedures to promote distancing will also be in place, including designated entry and exit doors, guests will be asked to play six feet apart inside.
