  • We have foot openers on all bathroom doors.
  • All of our filtration is UV and ozone sterilized for our touch tank exhibits.  
  • We added more hand sanitizer dispensers.
  • We currently do not have air dryers in the bathrooms; we replaced with paper towel machines.
  • We sanitize our artifacts and feed sticks after every use.
  • We provide easy access to handwashing facilities and hand sanitizers.
