THE BAKKEN MUSEUM RESPONSE TO NOVEL
CORONAVIRUS DISEASE (COVID-19)
Due to concerns around COVID-19, The Bakken Museum is temporarily closed to the public.
The safety of our employees, visitors, and program participants is a top priority. We reject the xenophobia that has arisen in the discourse around COVID-19 and will act on the fact-based recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and the State of Minnesota.
Please find the most up-to-date information on COVID-19 from the following experts:
- Minnesota Department of Health
- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
- World Health Organization (WHO)
If you have registered for an education program or event through the museum, our staff will be in contact with additional information soon.
With questions, please contact our visitor services desk at email@example.com.
We look forward to welcoming all of our visitors and supporters back to the museum in the coming weeks.
The Bakken Museum leadership and staff
The Bakken Museum’s education programs challenge kids of all ages to engage with science and innovation. The museum encourages people to think, make, and do things in new ways through STEM-based programming.
Our team is currently developing digital STEM content for use by parents and educators. Online programming for families will offer challenges and experiments with everyday household objects. Educators will be able to access our most popular science theatre and assembly shows to enhance their distance learning curriculum.
We hope to have a resource available on our website in the beginning of April and will continue releasing content to help parents, kids, and teachers have fun learning experiences.
