We are so delighted to be reopening the Museum on June 15, 2020!! We have added many measures to ensure you enjoy your visit while staying safe.

First, in compliance with the St. Louis County requirements, ALL Museum staff, volunteers, and guest over the age of nine must wear a mask inside public places, on the miniature train and trolley, and outdoors if 6′ social distancing cannot be met. PLEASE respect the COVID-19 6′ Social Distancing Recommendations. The Museum staff reserves the right to limit the number of guest in each building.

We encourage you to enjoy the great outdoors by exploring our 42-acre campus while viewing our world-class collection of artifacts.

Here are the steps we’ve taken to get back on TRACK!

Added protective shields at point-of-sale locations. Foot pulls have been added to doors, when possible, enabling guests to exit without touching the handles.

Tables and benches have been moved at least 6′ apart. Please do not move tables or benches.

No public tours will be given through passenger cars; however, we have tour guides tationed around the Museum waiting to answer your questions.

Added portable hand-sanitizing stations around the Museum.

We have a ‘bucket brigade’ cleaning and disinfecting on a regular routine/rotation.

Designated 6′ waiting spots at the Welcome Desk, cafe’, miniature train, trolley, and handcars.

For right now, we have switched to grab-and-go items in the cafe’.

We are leaving interior doors open, when possible, enabling guests to exit while touching as few handles as possible.

Fewer guests will be riding the miniature train and trolley on each run. Additionally, the mini-train and trolley will be disinfected frequently throughout the day.

All drinking fountains are turned off per compliance with government regulations.

In compliance with St. Louis County COVID-19 requirements, all employees and volunteers will have their temperature taken each day when arriving on campus.
