All guests ages two and over are required to wear a mask covering their nose and mouth at all times. The Museum requires both vaccinated and unvaccinated guests and staff to wear a mask.*

Guests may temporarily remove their masks when eating while sitting six feet from others outside of their household. All masks must be at least two layers, not have vents or valves, and scarfs, face shields, bandanas, and gaiters are not allowed.Those who have received the COVID-19 vaccine must still wear a mask and follow all safety protocols. Those who do not follow this policy will be asked to leave. For more information click here.

* Masks are required of all guests, ages 2 and older, during business hours, irrespective of a person’s vaccination status. However, to fulfill the mission of Pretend City and to meet our vision of supporting the healthy growth of all children, the museum will hold two sessions per week that are responsive to the needs of children with medical conditions that interfere with their ability to comply with our mask policy. During these hours, masks will be optional for those children, 2 and older, who need accommodation. All families are always welcome to the museum, but the medical accommodation will only be available during the following sessions: Wednesday afternoon and Sunday morning. Adults are required to always wear a mask.

Atire

Remember, this is a Children’s Museum.  We do not allow any attire that is offensive, vulgar or instills hate.  

Adventure Guide

The Way to Play Adventure Guide is a packet of simple and entertaining play activities for you to use at the Museum. They are designed to help you better understand your child’s developmental milestones, gauge each new stage of growth and encourage emerging abilities in your child’s life. 

Safety

All children visiting the museum must be accompanied by an adult 18 years of age or older.  For safety sake, we remind you that all adult visitors must supervise the children in their party. 

Respectful

Be respectful of other parents, caregivers and children. We are all learning. Pretend City is a place for empathy, not judgement. Be present with your children. Your attention and engagement are meaningful for your children and help create a safe space for all. Pretend City is a nonprofit organization. Items being taken from the museum, lost, or damaged are a financial burden for us. Please leave everything here at Pretend City and take care of our exhibits so everyone can benefit.

Service Animals

Pretend City allows full access to guide dogs and service animals under ADA requirements. Many of our young visitors love four-legged friends and may want to pet service animals without understanding they are on the job. While it is not legally required to use an identification leash or vest, we strongly encourage visitors with service animals to use them. An identification leash or vest can help protect your service animal and keep them safe.
