KidsQuest is currently closed.

KidsQuest has always been committed to the well-being of our community, and we will continue to be here for you. We are rolling out new ways to play and learn with us.  Over the coming weeks, KidsQuest Children’s Museum will be posting videos to social media in order to bring playful and educational activities to children and families throughout the community, supporting your child’s learning and your family’s needs during this difficult time. Please follow our Instagram @kidsquestmuseum, our Facebook @KidsQuestChildrensMuseum, and check out our YouTube channel KidsQuestCM.

Ways to Keep Yourself and Your Family Healthy From the Coronavirus:

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching eyes, mouth or nose with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. The World Health Organization suggests maintaining at least 3 feet of space between yourself and an ill person, or someone who is coughing and sneezing.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or the crook of your arm when sneezing or coughing (also known as the vampire cough). Dispose of tissue after use.
  • Stay home and away from others if you or your family members are feeling ill.

Here’s a fun video you can watch with your kids to explain why washing your hands is important to prevent the spreading of germs and viruses and how to do it properly (hint, there is a fun experiment include!).

What precautions are KidsQuest taking to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19)?

The cleaning procedures in place at KidsQuest follow strict internal guidelines as well as the safety guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and the Washington State Department of Health.

The Museum is professionally cleaned and disinfected each night. All movable toys and props are disinfected in our dishwasher or with an antibacterial spray. With concern over the virus we have increased the amount of times these props are disinfected throughout the day.

Our Water gallery is filtered and continuously cleaned through our two UV light treatments, and appropriate spa levels of bromine are maintained. Our staff and volunteers sanitize our exhibits and touchable surfaces throughout the day. The restrooms are professionally cleaned each evening and maintained by staff throughout the day.

KidsQuest has also added hand sanitizing stations throughout the museum, but still encourages staff and patrons to wash their hands with soap and water whenever possible.

Should I still visit KidsQuest? What are the risks to my child?

Yes! We look forward to welcoming the community back to the museum. We will update our website and socials, and email all subscribers once a reopening date has been scheduled.

Have any of your staff showed signs of being sick?

KidsQuest has had zero reports of staff members who could have been exposed to the Coronavirus. We have sent a memo to all staff reminding them to stay home if they feel ill in any way and reminding them they will not be penalized for doing so.

What if a visitor to the museum has been sick? Have any recent visitors been exposed to Coronavirus?

KidsQuest has not been notified by the CDC or any other public health organization that an exposed person has visited KidsQuest. As with any public space, we cannot know the medical history of every visitor, but KidsQuest is taking every precaution to strengthen our cleaning procedures and reduce the risk of spreading germs.
