COVID-19 safety measures and requirements

Beginning Wednesday, January 26, proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 or proof of a recent negative PCR test for COVID-19 will be required for entry into the Science Museum of Minnesota.

Our staff is hard at work making sure your visit is as safe as possible. Following guidelines from our local science and health officials, we have developed best practices to keep visitors, staff, and volunteers as safe as possible. We’ll continue to monitor public health locally and nationally and will look for your feedback on your experience, too!
