Analysis of Performance

In Q2 2021, the museum hosted 12,841 guest onsite. The museum hosted Open Stage: Tiny beautiful Things production in the museum's Big Backyard for three consecutive weekends in May and June. Museum floor programming returned with the opening of "Life in One Cubic Foot."

The Museum has returned to an admission-based model with capacity restrictions, with new open hours spanning 5 days per week. We continue to work with local public health leaders and to monitor national trends and best practices to recapture visitation safely.
