14Can I drop my kids off at Myseum?
The rule at Myseum has always been that every kid must have a grown-up, and every grown-up must have a kid! Although our staff does an amazing job of maintaining a safe, fun environment, we are not a childcare facility and are not staffed adequately to supervise your child while they play in Myseum. We serve as a unique community location where kids and their grown-ups can play, grow and learn together. And parent-child connections are one of the greatest contributors to a happy, healthy child.
15Do you have Wi-Fi available in Myseum?
Yes. However, we would encourage screen-free play, for kiddos and grown-ups! If you can, try to put your phone away and enjoy some unplugged play with your kids. Or pretend it's 1999 and talk to some of the other grown-ups!
16How much does it cost to get into Myseum?
Admission for children 2-17 is $10.95, for adults is $5.95, and for seniors is $4.95. Toddlers under 2 are admitted free
17Why do adults have to pay to get into Myseum?
Great question! Adults often ask us why they are charged admission, especially when the kids are doing most of the playing. We have a few helpful answers for that:

 

  • 1) Although we understand that grown-ups sometimes need a break from the often exhausting task of caring for kids, Myseum is not a childcare facility. We exist as a community advocate for caregiver-child interaction.
  • After all, as an adult you are your child's first play partner. Your involvement helps to scaffold your child's ability to play in ways that are more sustained and sophisticated through your comments, questions and prompting.

    While kids are often perfectly content playing on their own or with peers, they also need time to bond with their parents or caregivers. This is a critical building block necessary for child-development.

  • 2) Research shows us that adults who spend time playing tend to be more creative, less stressed and better at solving problems!
  • 3) Charging a fee for adults helps us keep admission costs lower across the board.
18Can I bring my coffee / lunch / snacks into Myseum?
Yes, If you want to eat lunch during your visit, you are welcome to bring in a cooler (or have food delivered) and use our café area located in the front of our space. We just ask that you do NOT bring food or beverages onto the exhibit floor. This helps keep Myseum in great shape for future visitors.
