March 17 - May 15
March 14, 2020
As the full impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to grow, Kidzu Children’s
Museum has been closely monitoring the guidance of public health agencies to decide how
best to proceed.
Though we have had no known or reported cases of Coronavirus here at the museum and
have taken extensive protective measures to limit exposure within our walls, we feel the
only way to truly mitigate the spread of the virus and protect loved ones who are at the
highest risk, is to discourage public gathering and encourage social distancing until health
officials feel it is under control.
Therefore, effective Sunday, March 15th, Kidzu’s Children’s Museum will close
temporarily for the next two weeks at minimum.
While this presents challenges in the short-term, we believe instituting these changes will
have far-reaching benefits for public health over the long-term.
The Good News:
Members of our Programs team have planned a daily menu of cool things for you to do with
your kids during our closure! Check out our website and social media posts for video
programming and activity suggestions to do at home. We’re here for you and excited to
work together remotely!
As a non-profit that depends on admission and programming to support Kidzu operations,
times like this inevitably carry a great financial burden for our museum. Your generosity
continues to be invaluable. Please consider purchasing gift certificates for loved ones,
maintaining your membership or simply donating to the museum during this temporary
We will continue to monitor the situation closely, following the recommendations of health
officials, and will be posting updates on our website and through social media. In the
interim, please direct any questions, issues or concerns here. We will be checking this email
On behalf of the Board of Directors, staff and key stakeholders at Kidzu, we thank you for
your understanding, and beyond all, your recognition of the power each of us has to save
We wish you and your family good health.
