CHOM REOPENS SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 6 | RESERVATIONS REQUIRED
We are excited to announce that we are now accepting reservations for families to come back to CHOM! Due to the pandemic, we have limited hours and are asking our members and guests to reserve their time online and enjoy the exhibits in our newly set-up circuit. (READ OUR PRESS RELEASE HERE)
At this time, only 1/2 of our facility is open but we’re set up exhibits to make it a fun and interesting place for kids to come back and enjoy the play to learn atmosphere they remember prior to the onset of the pandemic.
NEW HOURS & RESERVATIONS LINK
Beginning this Saturday, our hours are 10 am – 2 pm and we plan to be open Fridays and Saturdays through March with ongoing evaluation of the COVID-19 situation and the possibility of opening more days during the week. We’re grateful for your patience and support over the last year and we look forward to a sense of normalcy in the coming months.
To reserve a time for your family attend, visit this link and sign up! Please be sure to read all of the information in advance as we are strictly following the rules that have been implemented. All who wish to visit MUST pre-register online.
ABOUT YOUR MEMBERSHIP & RATES
If prior to our closure in 2020, your membership had not yet expired, we are extending your membership to that same expiration month in 2021. The $6 daily rate still applies to non-members over 24 months.
Through the generosity of The Community Foundation of Northern Illinois, the Stephenson County Youth Diversion Grant, and the ongoing support of our members and donors, CHOM has secured the necessary equipment and supplies, and has developed a strategy to help families stay safe while still enjoying many of the exhibits that were in place prior to the COVID-19 closure. Thank you for your continued interest and support of the mission of CHOM.
