Phased Reopening Plan

Phased Reopening Plan

We miss having you and your family playing and learning inside the museum during this time of social distancing. While the building has been closed, our team remains hard at work—updating and cleaning our exhibits, installing a new mural by local artist Gretchen Wood, and developing new ways to engage and empower through our virtual programming and at-home activity kits for our members.
 
Your family’s health and the safety of our community are central to our decisions at the Building for Kids. In line with current public health guidance and in partnership with museums across the Fox Cities, the Building for Kids has created a phased reopening strategy.
 
In this reopening plan, there are three principal phases which allow for increasing levels of activity and engagement within our museum. As the situation remains fluid, there are no dates assigned to these specific phases at this time. We are carefully monitoring the situation and are hopeful that we will announce phase one in the coming weeks.
  
In phase one, small group programming combined with increased health and safety protocols will resume. This phase will be primarily focused on engaging our members and will not include open exhibits. Future phases will include the opening of our museum exhibits and, finally, larger group events. More information will be released regarding each phase as it occurs.

Throughout these phases, our visitors can expect the following core safety measures:

  1. Face coverings/masks will be required for all visitors and staff (3 years+) for the protection of others.
  2. Registration and limited duration visits will be used to regulate visitor numbers and support public health efforts.
  3. Distancing between household groups will be created through directed movement and some facility augmentations.
  4. Hand washing and sanitizing will be required upon arrival and recommended throughout your visit.
  5. Enhanced disinfecting processes will be implemented by staff between groups of visitors.
 
Throughout this phased reopening, we hope you will continue to play and learn with us through virtual and at-home activity kit programming.

Stay well,

Oliver Zornow
Executive Director
