CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Staff with the Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History are excited to reopen to area families and children.

Members with the museum say they could’ve reopened two weeks ago.

However, staff says they wanted to take extra precautions before reopening.

Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History director of education and operations Scott Simmons says visitors can expect several changes.

Staff will be required to wear masks and there will be several sanitation stations in place for folks to take advantage of.

“It’s just a matter of getting everything you know safe for not only us as employees but also for the community that’s going to be coming in,” says Simmons.

The museum will reopen at 25% capacity.

Members also say they will follow social distancing guidelines while temperature checks will be conducted for customers, as well.

Staff says they are ready to reopen their doors, allowing area children to get involved with engaging activities and topics.

“All of us that are in education, we make our bonds with the kids," camp coordinator Isabel Ortiz said. "We love working with them, and being quiet around here, it just doesn’t feel right."
