Boston Children’s Museum offers children with special needs/medical needs the opportunity to visit the Museum at a time when there are only a few other visitors. At these times, we have a limit of 100 guests, and children and their families can explore the Museum with less concern about large crowds. To accommodate different needs related to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are now two different versions of Morningstar.
