DOVER - The Children's Museum of New Hampshire in Dover has made the decision to close through the end of March.
"In the interest of doing our part to support the health and wellness of our community and each other, the Children's Museum of New Hampshire will temporarily close to the public beginning at 5 pm, March 14th, 2020, through the end of March," shared Jane Bard, CMNH President. "All efforts will be made to reschedule cancelled events, and all groups and individuals affected will be contacted by our staff."
Over the coming weeks, museum staff will continue to work both off-site and on-site with appropriate social distancing procedures. Staff will take this time to deep clean and refresh the museum facility and exhibits, plan programs and events, and host virtual online activities with museum educators to engage children and families during this challenging time.
"We will continue to monitor developments and share any updates via our website and social media channels. We appreciate your support and understanding and look forward to welcoming you back to the Museum when we reopen!"
