COVID-19 Information

To our Mississippi Children’s Museum family,

We hope you and your loved ones are well and safe during this time of national crisis. MCM made the difficult decision to close to the public in mid-March to support our healthcare first responders and will continue to abide by the recommendations of our state and federal officials.

Currently, we anticipate being closed for April and May, and joyfully, hope to reopen with our summer exhibit, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Secrets of the Sewer in June. We will continue to monitor the situation and encourage you to follow us on social media for the most up-to-date news.

A few items you may be wondering about:

As we navigate these challenging times together, we want you to know our non-profit relies on admissions, grants, and supportive donors to keep our doors open and carry out our mission. We need your financial support now, more than ever! Please click here to learn more about how you can help us Inspire Hope!

While closed to the public, we’re still working hard, finding new ways to connect with our members and our community! You’ll find all sorts of fun activities to do with your children, experiments to try at home, coloring sheets and more on our website. Be on the lookout for a special edition of our MCM Playbook in your mailbox in a few weeks!

You can also keep in touch with us through our social media. We’ve been posting videos with story times, your favorite MCM programs, and behind the scenes peeks of our museum.
