COVID-19 Updates

Long Island Children’s Museum recommends that all visitors over the age of 24 months wear a mask over their nose and mouth during their visit.  Since children under the age of 5 have only recently become eligible for vaccinations, we are making this recommendation to protect them.

Keeping children safe is one of our primary responsibilities and we take it seriously.  We thank you for helping us keep children’s health a priority at the Museum.

For answers regarding other COVID-19 updates at the Museum, see our frequently asked questions.
