OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The Omaha Children’s Museum will be reopening in August after closing for several months.

The museum says its reopening will be happening in stages and will follow county and state guidelines to protect guests and employees from the coronavirus.

“We are excited to see families back at the museum,” said Executive Director Lindy Hoyer. “The health and safety of our guests and staff are our top priority. We are working hard to finalize the details in our plan for reopening in order to reassure families and our community that it is safe to return to the Omaha Children’s Museum.”

The museum has been closed to the public since March 14, with limited opening for summer camps since June.

A reopening plan was submitted to Douglas County Health & Human Services in early July. Several changes will need to be made to minimize crowd levels and allow extensive daily cleaning processes. These policies will be announced soon.

Timed tickets will go on sale prior to August 15. Tickets will be available in limited quantities. The on-sale date will be announced soon.
