A Very Busy Museum

It's been a busy time here at the Museum the last two weeks during our annual shutdown for facility deep cleaning and new exhibit installation. As some of you may know, every September we close for two weeks for our annual refresh. We are almost ready to show off our freshly painted walls, sparkling clean exhibits, and our brand new exhibit, The Play's the Thing.

Here are some pictures of what it has looked like during this busy time getting ready for our reopening on Monday, September 14.

Thanks to our many staff and volunteers who work to spruce up our exhibits, you will have freshly painted walls to enjoy.

Even though all of our manipulative pieces are cleaned daily, during shutdown they are taken outside, where each piece is scrubbed or power washed.

Our water tables in WaterWays had a major deep cleaning. First we sanded each table, which roughed out and filled in all the crevices. Then we painted them with an epoxy paint, which made them look very shiny. All of the floor mats were power washed and set outside to dry. These procedures contribute to our committment to keeping WaterWays exceptionally clean!

Our refresh is almost complete! We're looking forward to welcoming all of you back!
