We all have a part to play!

The North Country Children’s Museum is excited to reopen to the public in September! Click here to watch our reopening video.

During our temporary closure, we have been carefully developing a safe and prudent reopening plan for our visitors and staff.  In addition to advice and recommendations from state and local government, we received guidance and best practices from the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with several business and cultural partners and our advisory task force.

The staff has been busy working to reimagine our programming and come up with new and fun ways to safely engage children and families.  If you’re not comfortable or able to play in person, please visit our YouTube Channel for accessible virtual programming

We need play now more than ever and we are so excited to welcome you back!

Your Part to Play

Our Part to Play

All NCCM Educators have been tested and will be wearing facemasks. The NCCM Education Team will be required to complete health screenings including temperature checks and a stay home if you feel sick policy.

We are currently operating at a reduced capacity at 25% of normal daily attendance to allow for social distancing.

Our cleaning and sanitizing procedures include hospital-grade cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting solutions.  Toys and manipulatives will be fully sanitized each day.  Surfaces of the exhibits and high traffic areas will also be cleaned throughout the day and deeply during closed hours.

If everyone follows these steps, we can all safely return to joyful learning and play at the museum!
