Plan for Play

Santa Fe Children’s Museum is CDC-compliant and since March 2020 has made changes to keep you, your family, and our staff safe and healthy. Some of the new operations include; encouraging staff/youth mentors/volunteers to be vaccinated, being outdoors as much as possible, adjustments to exhibit availability, upgrades to our HVAC system, and a purchase of new hospital-grade air purification system.

As of February 17, 2022, New Mexico does not require face masks in all indoor spaces. This policy applies to our guests, staff, and volunteers. However, everyone may continue to wear a mask to protect themselves and others from getting COVID-19. If you feel more comfortable with your child wearing a mask, that is ok! Masks must be provided from home.

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 policies of SFCM is abiding by the mission to keep all of your campers and staff are equitably healthy and safe.

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