The Greensboro Children’s Museum has suspended in-person operations as of December 11, 2020. 

Due to the ongoing surge in COVID-19 cases and resulting restrictions, the Greensboro Children’s Museum today announced that it will suspend public operations effective December 11, 2020. The Museum’s Board of Directors is looking to reopen to the public sometime near the end of the second quarter of 2021, which is based on current information and projections for the pandemic, including the availability of one or more COVID-19 vaccines.

frequently asked questions

“This was a difficult decision for us to make, but the safety of the children, their parents and our staff is paramount. We are a hands-on, interactive environment by design, so the restrictions and safety protocols associated with the coronavirus pandemic are particularly challenging for us. We feel the most responsible decision we could make at this point is to suspend public operations until a point in time where we can safely resume the normal operations of all of our exhibits.” – Tom Guerrieri, board chair for the Greensboro Children’s Museum
