The Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose is reopening Bill’s Backyard, its outdoor educational space, to the public on Friday, March 5. The museum first reopened on February 19 and offered two members-only weekends before reopening to the general public.
The museum will be open every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with two play sessions per day. Reservations are required for the play sessions, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 – 4:00 p.m., with an hour cleaning break between sessions.
To ensure visitor and staff safety, the museum employed various safety protocols including a 25% attendance cap, online reservations for contactless ticketing, plexiglass shields at admissions for staff and visitors, a mask requirement for anyone age two or older, and additional hand sanitizers.
Tickets for Bill’s Backyard are $5 per child or adult for the entire museum and admission is free to museum members. Through the Museums for All program, admission is $2 per person with the presentation of an electronic benefit card or other specific documentation. The national initiative provides all families the opportunity to visit regardless of their ability to pay.
