LCM Closes Amid Coronavirus Precautions

We recognize the emerging need to implement social distancing practices in order to minimize the spread of Coronavirus via public spaces.  To focus on the health and wellbeing of our visitors and the entire community, the Lincoln Children’s Museum will temporarily close to the public until further notice as of 5:00 pm, March 13th.  We will remain closed as we monitor this developing situation.

Specific Programming Information:

-      Memberships:  The museum will be extending current memberships by the number of days we remain closed.

-      Events: All upcoming museum sponsored events are postponed with the intention of rescheduling later in the year.

-      Camps: As the situation unfolds, we will keep families updated on our plans for camps on April 10th, 13th, and beyond.

-      Birthday Parties, Field Trips, and Private Rentals: Families and organizations with current reservations will be contacted directly with more information.

We are hopeful that with the multitude of community actions, this will have a positive impact in slowing down the spread of Coronavirus so that we can all gather together again soon for fun.

Please watch the Lincoln Children’s Museum website and Facebook page for additional information.
