"Knowing we were unable to serve families and children through a safe, clean, indoor space that is so beloved has been the most difficult part of all of this. Especially with it being wintertime! Especially in the winter time," said Jackie Erdman, ABCM Executive Director. "One of the biggest silver linings is that we have been able to assess the museum top to bottom to make our space as efficient and safe as possible moving forward."
