Children’s Discovery Museum, Normal Theater Temporary Closures

Posted on March 13, 2020 at 6:17 PM by Rachelle Cantero

The Town of Normal’s Cultural Arts Department will temporarily close to the public starting on Saturday, March 14 to help limit large gatherings for the health and safety of our visitors and members. This includes the Children’s Discovery Museum and the Normal Theater; both sites will remain closed through March 30.

The decision follows Governor J.B. Pritzker’s announcement that all schools in Illinois will close to students from Tuesday, March 17 through Monday, March 30 due to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 health issue. 

The health of our children and their caregivers, our staff, and community is our No. 1 concern. The Town continues to monitor this rapidly changing situation and more information will be shared about plans to reopen in April. Updates will be posted on our websites at and
