The DoSeum is more than a children’s museum.  As a premier leader in informal education and a convener for joyful learning experiences, we cherish the role we’ve played in connecting families and transforming communities over the past 25 years.  We’ve always taken great care to provide a safe and healthy place for children to learn, explore, create, and discover. 

Now, as we begin to implement a phased re-opening model during this extraordinarily challenging time, we do so with a continued focus on the health and wellbeing of our Guests and Staff and a strong commitment to maintain high standards in our safety and cleaning procedures that align with regulations and recommendations established by the CDC, city and state mandates, the Texas Education Agency, and other national museum and camp organizations.

Over the years, we’ve served to inspire and empower kids to DO their best to overcome challenges and solve problems. As we look forward to re-opening our doors, we invite all our Guests to partner with us in our efforts to continue to promote a joyful, safe, and healthy environment for all.  Together we can DO this.


In our effort to prevent the spread of the COVID virus we have implemented the following procedures:

  • Social distancing protocols following the recommendation and guidelines set out by the State of Texas and CDC.
  • Implementation of new health protocols regarding the service of food as set out by the State of Texas and CDC.
  • Increased cleaning and sanitation protocols that meet or exceed the recommendations set out by the State of Texas and CDC, including the use of disinfectants specifically for use against the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) viruses.
  • Implementation of new protocols regarding video games and interactive amusements as set out by the State of Texas and CDC.
  • The use of face masks by staff and guests following the recommendations and guidelines set out by the State of Texas and CDC.
  • Temperature checks upon Guest check-in. 
  • Implementation of occupancy guidelines set out by the State of Texas and CDC.
  • Additional training and screening for all our employees, contractors, and volunteers following the recommendations and guidelines set out by the State of Texas and CDC.
  • In the event we are notified of a COVID infection from a Staff member, we will follow all recommended guidelines and steps as outlined by the State of Texas and CDC.


In our effort to prevent the spread of the COVID virus help us by following these procedures:

  • Guests 10 and older required to wear cloth face masks both while inside The DoSeum as well as outdoor areas. Face masks strongly recommended for ages 2+.
  • Masks may be removed temporarily if eating or drinking at one of our designated cafe areas.
  • Avoid, where possible, being in a group of 10 or more
  • Maintain at least 6ft distance from others not in your party
  • Respect exhibit capacities
  • Use hand sanitizer and wash your hands often
  • Be mindful of time spent in each exhibit as a courtesy to other guests
  • Stay home if you feel sick or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms
  • All Guests will be required to follow the guidelines outlined by the governor of Texas.
  • Be kind to other Guests and Staff

Note: Guests who fail to follow the above guidelines will be asked to leave or encouraged to reschedule their visit for a later date when these measures are no longer in place.

We have taken these measures and many more to provide an environment that is safe and enjoyable for everyone! Look forward to welcoming you back to The DoSeum!
