St. Louis Science Center will close Monday as pandemic escalates

The St. Louis Science Center announced Thursday that it will be closed for about two weeks due to the increase of COVID-19 in the area.

The museum will close at 4:30 pm on Monday and plans to reopen at 9:30 am on February 3, evaluating the situation during the shutdown.

Last week, the St. Louis Art Museum and the Missouri History Museum announced they would close through the end of January. The Soldiers Memorial Military Museum and the MHS Library and Research Center are also closed.

Science Center will continue to provide virtual science content and on social media.

Those who have previously purchased tickets for this time period may contact the museum’s reservation office at 314-289-4424 during regular business hours. Tickets for “Tyrannosaurs: Meet the Family,” which were due to close on January 24, will be refunded.
