Welcome Back


To ensure that we are able to keep the Museum open and safe, we need your help.


The first thing you’ll notice is that our hours are different. Each day will contain two play sessions. Arrive at the beginning of your session to make the most of your visit!

Hours of Operation:

Friday: 2:00 to 4:00 pm

Saturday: 10:00 to 12:00 and 2:00 to 4:00 pm

Sunday: 1:00 to 4:00 pm

Note: Hours may vary depending on advanced registrations


While walk-ins are welcome, we recommend making a reservation in advance as we still have limited capacity. Book your reservation 48 hours in advance by calling 805.928.8414 or sending an email to:
