Health & Safety Update

By March 5, 2020Announcement

The health and safety of our guests is our top priority!

Great Explorations is closely monitoring the coronavirus (which is now known as COVID-19) and working in partnership with the Health Department, Pinellas County School Board, and partnering organizations. We will also continue working closely with all entities, receiving the most up-to-date information, guidance, and resources in order to prepare and respond as needed.

Great Explorations is increasing our daily cleaning and disinfecting protocols in our museum, gift shop, classrooms, and offices. Trained team members regularly sanitize and disinfect common areas throughout the day, including the hand-held objects and surfaces in our exhibit spaces. Additionally, a professional cleaning crew does a deep cleaning each night.

Guests will find hand sanitizer stations throughout the museum, as well as increased signage illustrating the process and importance of washing our hands frequently. Please remember, if a toy has come in contact with your child’s mouth, please place the item in the available bins and our team will properly disinfect the toys before bringing them back to the gallery.

Today and every day, we respectfully remind our guests to practice preventative measures used during flu season, like washing your hands, covering coughs and sneezes, and staying home when sick. ​

We take pride in our museum and preschool being a safe, clean environment for all our guests.
