MILWAUKEE, WI – (Jan. 10, 2022) — The Betty Brinn Children’s Museum will expand their schedule to include additional days and hours in 2022. Beginning Jan. 10, the Museum will be open Thursday through Monday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The Museum will discontinue their morning and afternoon play sessions, maintaining continuous business hours.

“While we are not ready to return to our pre-pandemic schedule, the addition of Mondays is one step closer,” said Museum CEO Brian King. “We hope the transition to an additional day and longer open hours provides families with more flexibility to plan their visits.”

This includes stringent cleaning procedures, hand sanitizing stations, and the requirement for visitors ages three and older to wear face coverings at all times.
