Parent Resource Guide

As we all deal with this complicated situation, I want to make sure you are up to date on what is happening here at Knock Knock. 

Our singular focus during this time of uncertainty is the health and well-being of our visitors, our staff, and our community. For that reason, and in accordance with the guidelines set out by federal, state, and local officials, we are closing at least until the end of April. We are monitoring the situation closely, and we hope things will turnaround quickly. But we are prepared to do whatever is asked of us as a community partner to ensure everyone’s safety.  

Knock Knock Children’s Museum is more than just a place to play with a purpose. We are a resource to help you and your family navigate this trying time. Over the next several days and weeks, we will be releasing some fun, exciting, and educational videos that will help your children play, create, and explore without leaving home. These will be available on several different platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, and our website. We will post more details about these new online tools on this page and through our social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) in the coming days.

We want you to visit this page often as we will continually update it with useful and relevant information and resources. Some information will come directly from our trained staff, while other resources will come from outside sources that we know and trust. We are committed to providing positive, interactive play with a purpose, even if we can’t be together at Knock Knock.  

We hope that you and your family stay safe and healthy.
