Dear Works Museum community,

In light of the Minnesota Department of Health’s newest COVID-19 recommendations, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close The Works Museum until further notice as of 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 14. This is not a decision we take lightly, but the safety and health of our visitors, employees, and volunteers is our highest priority.

We will closely monitor the situation, and will continue to follow the recommendations of public health authorities. Out of an abundance of caution, we have also made the decision to postpone Robot Day and cancel our spring break camps. If you have already registered for either of these, you will receive a separate email from us shortly.

We will continue to post updates on our website and social media. If you have questions, you are welcome to email us at We look forward to inviting you back to The Works Museum once we reopen.

Wishing you all good health in the coming weeks.

Jill Measells
CEO, The Works Museum
