The Boston Children's Museum announced today it's closing Monday and won't re-open until at least Jan. 7 due to rising Covid-19 rates in the Boston area.
While disheartening during this time when the Museum normally welcomes thousands of children to enjoy festive exhibits and programs, we are confident that this step is in the best interest of our staff and visitors.
As when it closed earlier this year, the Museum is not presently closing the building or shutting down Museum operations. Museum business will continue with staff working remotely and some socially distanced in the building. With the short-term closure, staff will be working on virtual programming, grant-based project work, and staying connected with the many community endeavors the Museum is a part of.
The museum says people who purchased tickets in advance between Monday and Jan. 7 will get refunds.
