Questions and answers: Notes on The Works temporary closures due to COVID-19 and Reopening Details
September 1, 2020
When will The Works reopen to visitors?
At this time, The Works is closed, but will reopen to the public on October 1st. Please visit our website, or watch for updates on our social media and email communications for the latest news about The Works. Thank you!
As a member, how do the recent closures affect my membership?
Throughout our unexpected closure due to the pandemic, we have offered our members an extension of their membership period. Memberships to The Works have been extended for 6 months, the amount of time that we were closed due to public health requirements. Thank you for your patience as we navigate this difficult time. We appreciate our members and your support of our museum!
Are programs and events cancelled?
Currently, The Works is planning ways to create safe, socially distant programs and events once the museum reopens. Watch for more details soon! A variety of at-home camp kits and virtual content also can be found on our social media pages, along with other ways to connect and learn with the museum.
Refunds for previously cancelled programs have been issued to guests who registered for any paid programs or events that did not occur due to our unexpected shutdown. We are able to issue a gift card with credit for a future program, event or gift shop purchase at The Works. For those who would like to support The Works during this challenging time, in lieu of a refund, we would gratefully accept the program registration fees as a donation. Please feel free to contact us with questions about registration or cancelled programs.
We are currently providing [email protected] camp kits to inspire you and your child to explore and discover with us this summer! Look for new opportunities to explore History, Art, and Technology over the next few weeks as we continue releasing new camps and content.
How do I stay informed on what is going on at the museum?
Please follow The Works social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram, visit our website (www.attheworks.org), and watch for email communication from us (email us here if you’d like to be added to the list!).
