In accordance with Governor Reynolds’ most recent public health emergency proclamation, The Iowa Children’s Museum will require masks for all guests 2 years of age and older (a change from our previous policy which required masks for those 6 years and older and encouraged mask usage for children under 5). This change will take effect for play sessions starting on Wednesday, November 11th and last until further notice. To protect the health of everyone in our space, we will continue to require that masks cover the nose and mouth, that playgroups maintain 6 feet of distance from others while in the museum, and enforce our reduced capacity limits (less than 10% of normal capacity). Playgroups should be no more than 8 people, unless a larger group all live within the same household.
Our team is committed to providing quality play experiences for children while caring for the health of guests and staff. This increase in restrictions reflects the ever-changing public health crisis and is subject to further change without notice. We will continue to follow the recommendations and guidance of public health experts.
