The fine print:

  • AS OF SEPTEMBER 16, 2021 - The Boonshoft Museum of Discovery is committed to keeping our visitors and staff healthy and safe, and we are doing our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Our building is equipped to treat the air to kill viruses and bacteria, and we are continuing to do extra cleaning. With this in mind, the museum is following the most recent COVID mandate recommendation of Public Health Dayton and Montgomery County (PHDMC), and the City of Dayton.

    The new mandate, effective beginning September 16, requires people 6 years of age and older to wear a mask while inside public spaces regardless of vaccination status. The update comes in response to a spike in COVID – 19 cases and hospitalizations across the county. All museum staff are required to wear masks. We will continue to update this policy as conditions change.

  • ​You do not need to make reservation or buy tickets in advance.
  • We have re-opened everything in the museum!
  • Public Programs run daily! Check the Calendar for the daily schedule. 
  • Routine cleaning will happen throughout the day.
  • Staff will be available throughout the building to answer questions, guide guests and disinfect any touchpoints. 
  • Please call 937.275.7431 if you have any additional questions.
