Plan for Play

Santa Fe Children’s Museum is CDC compliant and has made changes to keep you, your family, and our staff safe and healthy. Some of the new operations include adjustments to our hours of operation, admission, exhibit availability, occupancy, upgrades to our HVAC & air purification systems, and more.

Additionally, we will continue to monitor and modify all recommendations to ensure that all visitors have a comfortable experience at the Santa Fe Children’s Museum. At the heart of all the policy that SFCM is abiding by is the mission to keep all of your campers and our staff healthy and safe.

We remain committed to delivering a fun and educational camp experience for all!
