See our cleaning and infection control procedures for complete information about how we clean. The Kansas Children’s Discovery Center cares deeply about its employees and visitors and is taking new measures that focus on health and safety in response to COVID-19. Our goal is to reduce the risks to you, other visitors, and our staff. Nonetheless, COVID-19 is very contagious and there is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public environment where people are present. Those visiting the museum do so at their own risk of exposure.
