Children’s Museum of Fond du Lac Adds Weekend Hours

Posted on: Mar 11th, 2021

The Children’s Museum of Fond du Lac will be offering reservation options for members and the community from March 13 – June 13, during its “Welcome Back Period”, part of a collaborative program with the Above & Beyond Children’s Museum of Sheboygan. This timeframe marks Phase 4 for the Children’s Museum of Fond du Lac. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, previous phases have allowed limited access to its outdoor space and to its interior by private reservations. The addition of weekend hours is based on a reopening plan that was approved by the organizations’ board of directors as well as their local departments of public health. 

Due to generous financial support from the Efroymson Family Foundation, National Exchange Bank Foundation and the Frank G & Frieda K Brotz Family Foundation, over 1,600 families have received free “Welcome Back Passes”, which provide admission to both museums. Passes can also be purchased online for $45 through the museum’s website, and are valid for the entire Welcome Back Period. The museum seeks to welcome all children. Anyone experiencing financial hardship can have fees waived by submitting an “Every Child Every Family” application, which takes only a few minutes to complete. 

“The caring and proactive thinking of our generous donors and the creativity of our staff has resulted in a collaborative Welcome Back Program that will support families while they are returning to our museums,” noted Andrea Welsch, executive director of the Children’s Museum of Fond du Lac. 

The March 13 reopening phase will incorporate limited attendance (beginning with 25%), new hours of operation and even more rigorous safety and sanitation measures. “We are so excited that this partnership program will support children and families and help them feel comfortable and safe in our spaces once again,” added Jackie Erdman , executive director of Above & Beyond.
