We're Open, We're Open! Hip, Hip Hooray!
PLEASE NOTE: With the movement of the local COVID dial into red, Kazoo's U-Stop Cafe will now be closed with outside food and drink not be permitted (aside form bottles for infants) as we want to ensure that all guests are wearing their masks for the entirety of their visit. With this change, please be sure to plan accordingly for snacks, meals, and beverages before or after your visit.
Want to come play? Reserve time today! See below for visitor information and reservation options...
Kazoo and our friendly staff are so super excited to welcome you back to the museum! Our mission to create, discover, and learn through the power of play is best lived out through in-person play. And although play at the museum won't look quite the same as it has in the past, rest assured it's going to be a blast!
All of our decisions have and will continue to be based on research, collaboration with the Lincoln/Lancaster County Health Department, insights we gain from your feedback and survey responses, and our expertise in the world of play.
The museum is open Thursday through Sunday. Timed ticketing reservations will be required and there are several things to know. So to make things as simple as possible, we've broken it down piece by piece for you.
Here's how it will work:
1. Understand your membership status.
All memberships were frozen as of the day we closed (March 13th, 2020) and were automatically "thawed out" (i.e. re-activated) effective July 9th, 2020. Members will be receiving communications with additional information soon. For now, just know that if you had an active membership with us as of March 13th, 2020 you again had an active membership with us as of July 9th, 2020. All expiration dates were moved forward by the number of days we were closed, so no paid time was missed by any member!
2. Review play materials (linked below).
Our Health and Safety / Logistics and Play Guidelines, LCM Waiver Form, and Respectful and Responsible Pledge have all the details on what to expect and how best to plan for an upcoming visit.
3. Reserve a time and tickets to play (click HERE to reserve).
Tickets can be reserved (members) and purchased (non-members) up to 7 days in advance. Non-member tickets are non-refundable at this time. Ticket timeslots are staggered every 15 minute to manage the number of people entering the museum at one time, but they do not limit your play session duration.
In accordance with the mask mandate put in place by the Lincoln Lancaster County Health Department and Mayor Leirion Gaylord Baird, the Lincoln Children's Museum requires masks to be appropriately worn by all visitors 5 years of age and over.
Whew...all those links have a TON of info, huh?! We're just making sure we've covered our bases and are being completely transparent with you and your families. You are the heart of the museum and we want to not only meet, but exceed your expectations as you feel comfortable returning to the museum.
Also, we recognize there is a lot to know and understand in order to make an informed decision for your family. If you have any questions or need additional information, please call us at 402-477-4000, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or send us a message on Facebook. Because the COVID-19 pandemic creates an ever-changing environment, please note that museum hours, processes, and requirements may change without notice. Any changes will be communicated via website, social media, and email (for those on our email list).
Ok, let's PLAY!
