A girl looks at materials under a microscope.As many of you know, it is our mission here at The Works Museum to inspire the next generation of innovators, engineers, and creative problem solvers. Part of fulfilling this mission is ensuring that our visitors can explore STEM in a safe and healthy environment. 

As we follow the developments related to coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to keep you informed of the measures that we are taking to protect our staff, visitors, and volunteers. We assure you that we are actively monitoring the situation, and will continue to follow the recommendations of the Minnesota Department of Health and other public health authorities. 

As of today, we will continue welcoming visitors the Museum at their discretion. 

As part of our additional safety measures, The Works Museum is committed to:

  • Closing 30 minutes early each day for additional disinfecting of our public spaces. 
  • Continuing our already thorough cleaning and disinfecting regimen.
  • Installing signs throughout the Museum to educate visitors on proper health precautions.
  • Increasing the availability of tissues and hand sanitizer for our visitors (when available).
  • Continuing conversations with public health authorities, and sending out regular updates.

We are asking our staff, and encouraging our visitors to:

  • Wash your hands thoroughly and regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Stay home if you or someone you live with is feeling ill.
  • Avoid touching your face and shaking hands.
  • Limit participation in large group activities.

We promise to keep you informed of any additional changes. You can always find up-to-date hours and information on our website and social media. If you have questions, we encourage you to email us at info@theworks.org, or call us at 952.888.4262.
