We are so grateful for the support of our KidsPlay Museum Members! Over the past eight years, membership revenue and repeat visitation have helped KidsPlay grow and thrive. We recognize that you have not been able to take full advantage of your membership over the past five months since the galleries have been closed. We hope you found some comfort, inspiration, and helpful information through our Virtual Museum and Playful Learning Toolkit. We have truly missed seeing you at the Museum and have been busy preparing for your return!
KidsPlay, like many cultural organizations, nonprofits, and businesses, has suffered a significant loss of revenue from admissions, events, and membership. To strengthen KidsPlay's resilience to the COVID-19 Pandemic challenges, we urge every Member to consider converting the missed months of membership, or a portion thereof, into a donation to the Museum. This donation will help ensure that the Museum has the necessary funds to operate with a substantially reduced capacity to promote physical distancing and with increased cleaning and sanitization protocols.
Alternatively, Members have the option to extend their membership by up to five months. We understand the challenges and uncertainties our members are facing due to the Pandemic and that extending your membership may be the best choice for your family.
Please complete this form to choose the option of either donating your missed months or extending your membership. If you are unsure of your membership expiration date, please call the Museum (860-618-7700).
- If your membership expired on April 13, you could donate (1) one month of membership as a $12.50 donation to the Museum or extend your membership by (1) one month to September 13.
- If your membership was valid for the entirety of the Museum's closure (March 13 – August 12, 2020), you could donate up to five (5) months (12.50 per month) or extend your membership by (5) months.
While you are considering this request, we will honor all memberships with an expiration date between March 13 and August 12 until August 31. This grace period will give your family time to consider which option is best for your family and visit the Museum to see the new exhibits and learn about the operational changes we have made.
Please let us know what your membership preference is by September 1, 2020. If you do not elect to extend your membership by September 1, it will default to a donation of missed months.
