The Museum Will Suspend all Planned Programming and Re-Opening Until Risk to Public Has Declined

Acting in accordance with recent announcements from Governor Baker and Mayor Walsh, Boston Children’s Museum will remain temporarily closed. We will continue to monitor the evolving situation and evaluate this decision in line with recommendations from the city and state.

The closing will help the community with the “social distancing” that is necessary to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus at this critical stage. All public and private events to be held at the Museum will not occur during the closure. Some events may be rescheduled to a later date. School visits and other education programs scheduled during the closure will be cancelled.

We’re happy to report that Museum programming is continuing online. Please visit our website for daily updated activities, programs, and rich resources from our staff, partners and special guests. We are also busy working on future program and exhibit development, and ways to stay deeply connected to our communities and help them through this crisis. These steps will ensure that families can return to the Museum knowing that our priority is that everyone has a playful, joyful, and healthy hands-on, interactive experience at Boston Children’s Museum.

The Museum staff will update any changes on its website along with social media channels. For additional information, please visit
