The Science Mill Reopens Today!

June 23, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

What’s new and different

We’re all about innovation and adaptation, and when our doors closed in March, we began to envision a Science Mill experience that maintains our “minds-on” focus on fun and exploration while safeguarding the health of our guests, staff and community. Our plans carefully follow the latest Phase 3 state guidelines and CDC recommendations for public health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic; you can find more details on our FAQ page.

  • We are now open 6 days a week, with two entry times most days:

    Tues-Sat, 10-1pm & 2-5pm and Sun, 12-4pm. We’re spacing out visits so everyone can freely explore while keeping a safe distance. Between the two sessions, we’ll do a deep cleaning and reset of the entire museum.

  • New exhibits + hands-free and outdoor activities Visitors have more to explore and more space for social distancing. We’ve expanded our outdoor Science & Art Park with new experiences, including the Labyrinth, Butterfly Garden, Giant Bubbles Station and Scavenger Hunt. All our hands-on science activities now come equipped with disposable gloves. If you prefer a touch-free visit, we have over two dozen minds-on exhibits to enjoy.

  • Same friendly faces, now with masks You’ll see all Science Mill staff wearing masks and gloves. While inside the museum, all guests ages 5 and up will need masks as well.

  • Hand sanitizer stations throughout the museum and updated bathrooms with touch-free towel and soap dispensers.

  • We’ve amped up our cleaning procedures, with staff on hand in every space to continuously disinfect exhibits, tools, handles and other surfaces after use.

  • New online ticketing system for a “contactless” entry.

  • Two entrances now available to support social distancing and keep any time in line as short as possible.
