In-Person Summer Camps Begin May 31st

After being closed for over 14 months, the Children’s Museum of Phoenix (CMoP) is thrilled to announce that they will re-open its interior spaces on May 29th. The Museum closed its doors on March 13, 2020 to mitigate the spread of Covid-19 at the start of the Pandemic and has remained closed since then.

During their closure, the Museum continued to fulfill their mission of engaging the minds, muscles and imaginations of children and the grown-ups who care about them with daily activities posted in both English and Spanish on their social media platforms, the creation of a virtual summer camp program called Camp-In-A-Box, Thinker Player Creator Boxes aimed to give kids hands-on activities that they can do at home, and their 100% Outside, 100% Fun  Adventure Play experience which opened in late October.

On May 10th, the Museum will close to the general public for 19 days to dismantle their outdoor Adventure Play experience and prepare the Museum’s interior exhibit spaces for visitors once again.

The Museum will be open 7 days a week, May 29th through Labor Day, September 6th from 9am to 4pm. Thereafter, operating hours will be 9am to 4pm Tuesday-Sunday. COVID-19 precautions will remain in place upon reopening including limited capacity and timed ticketing. Mask requirements and social distancing will be enforced.
