At the Museum of Science, the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, and visitors is our number one priority. The Museum has developed a new set of routines and requirements to help ensure we do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19.
A visit to the Museum should be an enjoyable and memorable experience. To preserve that opportunity, we expect everyone to be respectful of each other, and be considerate of the multitude of views and opinions that are different from your own.
By reserving tickets and visiting the Museum of Science, you are agreeing to comply with the Massachusetts travel order and the following requirements for visitor conduct.
If you or anyone in your party is experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms or have recently been in contact with someone confirmed, suspected, or showing signs of COVID-19, please stay home.
All visitors 5 years of age and older will be required to wear a CDC recommended face covering/mask during their visit to the Museum of Science. The Museum requests that all visitors under the age of 5, but over the age of 2 wear a face covering if able. Recommended face coverings/masks should be at least two layers thick. Face coverings/masks must be worn at all times fully covering both the nose and mouth.
In accordance with CDC recommendations, masks with unfiltered exhalation valves or vents are not permitted to be worn at the Museum.
Scientific evidence shows cloth face coverings/masks are a critical preventive measure for stopping the spread of COVID-19. Face coverings/masks help reduce the amount of droplets that you emit when you are speaking, breathing, or exhaling.
If you need to replace your mask while onsite, complimentary disposable masks are available at the Information Desk and box office or reusable masks are available for purchase in the Museum store.
Starting April 17 the Riverview Café will serve a selection of food from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. every day. For more information on food service, see our cafe page.
One household group is permitted per dining table and all guests must wear masks at all times, except when actively eating or drinking. There is a maximum of 6 people allowed per table for a 45-minute time limit.
Due to current regulations, café seating is reserved for café patrons. Visitors who prefer to bring in food are welcome to consume it on the front plaza outside or at the picnic tables behind the Museum.
Please note: Food is not permitted in the Exhibit Halls.

Accordingly, the Museum absolutely prohibits harassment or discrimination based on ability, age, color, ethnicity, race, family or marital status, sex, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, pregnancy and related medical conditions, language, national origin, political affiliation, religion, socioeconomic status, veteran status, health status, and other dimensions of diversity.
