Q: Does the Museum allow adults into the museum without a child?
A: Parents  think of children's museums as "safe havens" and safeguarding our  guests’ well-being is the Museum’s first responsibility. We  are happy to provide a staff escorted tour of the Museum to adult guests without  children at no charge.  If a staff person  is unavailable to provide a tour because of high guest volume or because the  Museum is short staffed, adults visiting the Museum without children can  contact the Museum to schedule a tour.  We are happy to schedule tours in advance.
