MY Museum has reopened to the public and we can’t wait to see you! With safety in mind, we have made some changes to your Museum experience.  Here’s what you can expect:

  • Timed Tickets – All visitors (including members) must reserve tickets in advance.  Tickets are for a selected two-hour time slot only.  If you are unable to purchase tickets online, please call us at (831) 649-6444 to make a reservation.
  •  New Summer Hours – Wednesday – Sunday, 10 am – 12 pm and 1 – 3 pm
  • Limited Capacity – Our capacity is currently limited to 50 people per time slot.
  • Masks are required for all guests age 2 and up for the safety of children under the age of 12 who are ineligible to receive the COVID vaccine.
  • Reduced Exhibit Manipulatives – We have greatly reduced the number of handheld toys throughout the Museum. We have added bins for you to place handled items so we can sanitize them for other guests.
  • No Food & Drink – Unfortunately, we currently cannot allow food or drink in the Museum.
  • Plan Ahead – Please bring only what you need.  If possible, leave large bags and strollers in your car.
