Children’s Museum Offers a Respite from the Chaos
The Children’s Museum of Sonoma County is offering free admission to the victims of the recent wildfires in Sonoma and Napa Counties. The Museum sustained minimal damage in the fire and is now open to the public. Parents and Caregivers are encouraged to use the Museum as a resource for kid-friendly and indoor activities during this period. Free admission for victims of the recent fires has been made possible, in part by a generous donation from PG & E.
The Museum, located at 1835 W. Steele Lane in Santa Rosa, includes an indoor science and imagination gallery, a toddler area, an arts center, as well as outdoor exhibits that showcase the diversity of Sonoma County, including a scale Russian River, stand of redwood trees, farm area and interactive butterfly garden. Parents and caregivers are asked to use their discretion in allowing their children to play in the outdoor exhibits. Current air quality information will be posted every half hour for reference.
The Museum will also serve as a donation distribution center for items needed by young families who have been affected by the wildfires. Please visit the Museum website for more information on the accepted types of items: DONATE HERE
The Museum’s mobile exhibits, Museum-on- the-Go, will be available for hands-on activities from 9:30 to 3:00 p.m. at the Northern California Volleyball Association (NCVA) headquarters located at 5621 Skylane Blvd, Santa Rosa. NCVA is offering help with kids of any ages that need child-friendly services during business hours or if parents need to leave their kids in a safe place while they deal with the emergency in our area.
