Why We Closed...
With heavy hearts, we closed the WONDERtorium’s doors on Wednesday, July 1st. As we struggled with this decision, our most important consideration was how to keep our visitors safe and healthy. Adhering to the pandemic safety recommendations of social distancing and elimination of hands-on activities does not permit us to meet our mission to engage children and adults in exploration, creativity and learning through play.
Although our doors have closed, the importance of play is as important as ever! This “virtual” version of the WONDERtorium offers play-based activities that provide physical, emotional, and cognitive benefits for all ages. Play is universal. Play is inclusive.
Just remember how you felt when you heard “Want to play?”
