The Children’s Museum of Phoenix will reopen its interior spaces on Saturday, May 29.

It had closed its doors on March 13 of last year to try to reduce the spread of COVID-19 at the beginning of the pandemic. The museum will close to the public for 19 days, starting May 10, as it dismantles its outdoor Adventure Play experience and prepares the interior exhibit spaces for visitors to return. After that the museum will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily from May 29 to Labor Day, Sept. 6.

COVID-19 safety measures will stay in place including limited capacity and timed ticketing. Visitors also must wear masks and socially distance themselves.

The museum will offer in-person summer camps with a reduced number of youths per week, starting May 31. These camps are designed for children ages 5 to 8 and they offer different themes including Dinosaur Discovery, Superhero Adventure and PAWsome Pets. To learn more, visit
