FAQs

What is an Open Play Session?


Open Play is a play session where exhibits are open for anyone to interact with. Beginning capacity for open play is small groups with masks required for those who are unvaccinated against COVID-19. Exhibits will be separated and spread out to help with social distancing.




What kind of Open Play Sessions are available?


We have different types of OPEN PLAY sessions, with special focus for different groups, like toddlers, babies, kids, people with special needs, and teens. The exhibits change with each session and depending on the group. We also have special themed open plays focusing on one type of play, like LEGO or water. Please see the schedule above for special Open Play Events




Do I have to book a spot?


Yes! Please book ahead using our website, mobile site, or the SPACES APP. In the future, when events can be larger, we will have walk-ins available.




Can I leave my child unsupervised?


We do not offer drop-off sessions for young children at this time. Open Play is designed for everyone to have fun and interact with each other. Please make sure the people you are responsible for are in your field of vision at all times. Teen events for visitors aged 13-17 are adult-free.




Do I have to come for the whole time/be present at beginning?


You can come at any time of the open session; just note that the cost will not be different if you arrive 40 minutes into the session or 5 minutes in. You can also leave and come back if you need.
