Artificial Intelligence: Your Mind & The Machine
A Note From Our CEO Regarding COVID-19
The Health Museum will be temporarily closed UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.


Like many organizations throughout the community, and out of an abundance of caution based on the newly updated guidelines from the CDC, The Health Museum will be temporarily closed March 17 until further notice。 This closure will support the nation's efforts to contain the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19)。 To continue to serve as a resource for the community, while our physical location is temporarily closed, we are creating online wellness and health programming in an effort to remain engaged and stay connected with you。 The leadership team at the Museum will continue to closely monitor coronavirus news and updates from the CDC, local, state, and national authorities。 Visiting our website and following us on social media will ensure that you receive the most up-to-date messages and information regarding our hours of operation。



For questions, updates, or if you have already purchased a ticket or class and would like to it or request a refund, contact us at Please allow 48 hours for a response.


Together, we hope to minimize the spread of COVID-19.
