Cincinnati Children’s Museum reopens Thursday

The Cincinnati Children’s Museum will reopen its doors Thursday after being closed for more than a year.

Guests must reserve tickets and must also wear masks.

The Cincinnati Museum Center continues to require all guests 2 years and older to wear masks for continued protection of unvaccinated individuals, including children and those with pre-existing medical conditions.

“We have put a lot of thought into how we can deliver a safe museum experience that still has the wow factor that defines the Cincinnati Museum Center,” said President and CEO Elizabeth Pierce in June. “Through ongoing consultation with health professionals and updated guidance from the CDC, we are excited to recapture more of our experience with the confidence that we are doing it safely.”

During the extended shutdown, staff spent time freshening up the children’s museum and “making sure every aspect is working at its peak,” officials said.

Officials said guests would need to reserve a timed entry ticket to ensure social distance. Members can now reserve tickets and non-members can reserve tickets up to four days in advance of their visit.

“We know we’re not the only ones who have circled this day on their calendar,” Pierce said. “Kids climbing through The Woods, splashing through Waterworks, and experiencing those transformative moments of joy and enlightenment are some of our most fulfilling moments as museum professionals.”
