COVID-19 Safety Procedures
Masks are required
Visitors ages 2 and up are required to wear masks while inside the museum, regardless of vaccination status. Masks should cover both nose and mouth at all times during your visit.
Social distancing is required between visiting groups.
Please plan visits with your immediate family or those with which you have been sharing space throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Groups arriving separately will be required to maintain distance from each other. Staff will be monitoring capacity and may ask you to wait a few moments to start your visit.
Stay home if you are feeling ill.
If you feel ill at the time of your planned visit, please stay home and make your visit on another day. If you need help or a refund should this situation arise, R!DC staff will be happy to assist via phone or email.
Consider buying tickets ahead of time for a no-contact transaction.
General Admission tickets are available on our website and purchasing ahead of time will contribute to minimal contact upon arrival. Need another ticket type? Tickets can be purchased upon arrival or by calling 317-275-9030.
Each family group will be issued their own set of sticks and mallets to play the interactive instruments throughout the museum, eliminating many high touch areas.
High Touch Areas
Hand sanitizer stations are now located throughout the museum, and guests are welcomed to use them any time, especially after interaction with one of our labelled high touch areas.
*Rhythm Discovery! Center staff reserves right to refuse entry or continued visitation to any guests who fail to follow the above guidelines, or any safety guidelines illustrated in the museum, or communicated verbally by museum staff.
