The LaunchPAD Children’s Museum will reopen on July 1

SIOUX CITY, IOWA – The LaunchPAD Children’s Museum is pleased to announce they are reopening their doors on July 1st.
The LaunchPAD is asking guests to visit their website to reserve a time slot in advance of their visit. Registration through their website will be available on June 15th.  The maximum number of guests at one time allowed in the museum will be 50 in total.
Support for low-income families is still available through their sponsored membership program. These families are asked to stop into the museum in-person to apply.
LaunchPAD’s in-person camps will begin on July 6th. Camp sessions will be limited to 10 children per session. Camps will be broken into age groups of 4-6 and 7-10. The cost is $70 per camp. Registration through their website will be available on June 15th.
While the LaunchPAD is excited to welcome guests back into the museum, there are several procedures that have been put in place for the health and safety of their guests and staff.
Temperatures will be taken with contactless thermometers before entry. The LaunchPAD reserves the right to refuse admission to guests with a fever. Please keep your child(ren) home if you or your child(ren) are experiencing any symptoms of sickness.
Masks will not be required but encouraged for adults and children over the age of 3. Staff will be wearing masks.
Staff will be wiping down surfaces with approved disinfectant during open hours. During the closed time periods, the museum will be sanitized with spray disinfectant using a fogging machine.
Executive Director, Rouleen Gartner said, “As always, the health and safety of our guests and children is our number one priority. We will continue to strive to create the best atmosphere for play and discovery. We don’t want to change things for the kids too much, so the LaunchPAD will do our best to make these adjustments without altering their ability to learn and play.”
