GREENSBORO, NC – April 12, 2021 Greensboro Children’s Museum announced today that it will resume public operations on May 29, 2021. Yesterday morning the museum’s board of directors decided to reopen to children and families for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. Greensboro Children’s Museum was closed for most of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and has been providing digital and home learning experiences to the community since the beginning of this year.

“We are very happy to welcome children and families back to the museum! We have been monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic to gauge when we can safely reopen to the public. With Governor Cooper’s latest announcements pulling back many of North Carolina’s restrictions and falling case numbers, our goal is to be open for the summer. The employees of the museum have developed a plan that puts the safety of our guests in the foreground: masking is compulsory for three or more people; social distancing and hand washing are encouraged during your visit; and staff will continue to clean and disinfect surfaces throughout the day. If everyone does their part, the hands-on game can safely return to Downtown Greensboro, and we’re so excited! ”

– Marian King, CEO.

As a non-profit association, the museum is primarily financed through memberships, walk-in customers, school classes, summer campers and donations. Almost 122,500 visitors attended Greensboro Children’s Museum in 2019, and ahead of the closings required by the pandemic, the museum was ahead of 2020 attendance numbers.

Greensboro Children’s Museum chairman Rosemary Kenerly is optimistic that the museum will return in a big way. “We can’t wait to get back to normal, but we want to get this right the first time. We want families to feel comfortable playing on our giant outdoor climbers and in our museum walls. We’ll be adding birthday parties, summer camps, and maybe even field trips further into the summer, so keep an eye out for these announcements. See you in May! ”

Museum members received membership renewals because of the closure; those with questions should check the museum website to see if they are eligible. King added, “We have a few surprises up our sleeves just for our members who have been so patient with us over the past year. We have a lot of fun on the go for the whole community; Stay tuned so you don’t miss any fun! ”

The museum, founded in 1999, aims to stimulate the imagination of children and offer educational play experiences and offers more than 20 interactive exhibits, including the 9-meter-high Neptun XXL climbers and a half-acre edible schoolyard teaching garden.
