We are happy to announce Play Pass!
A new way to play at CMLH! Our doors may be closed again temporarily, but that doesn’t mean we can’t play.

Play Pass days are by reservation only, please click here to reserve!
A daily Play Pass is $20 per family/ $10 for CMLH Members.

Play Pass FAQ’s 

Will I be allowed inside the Museum?
- No, Play Pass activities will take place entirely outside. The recent order from the governor closed all indoor museums. We will be closed until further notice. Thank you for your patience and we ask that you watch this space for reopening announcements and on-line reserved ticketing for our indoor space and galleries.

What kinds of activities will you have?
-Depending on the day, you and your little one can learn about the world of coding with Ozobots, create a beautiful painting during our guided art class, engineer a rollercoaster using our Blue Trax set, go on a nature scavenger hunt with staff, and more!

Where do I get tickets?
-Play Pass tickets are available if you click here!

What kind of Covid-19 precautions should we expect?
-Families rotate through various stations throughout the park to maintain social distancing. We ask that guests 5 and up wear a face mask. Museum staff and volunteers will also wear masks. In addition, we utilize contactless reservations and will be sanitizing all materials after each use. 

We thank you for your support in helping us continue to provide a quality Museum experience for your families during our temporary closure. The safety, health, and well-being of our guests is our top priority and we will continue to work on improving our Museum during this closure.
