Covid Safety




COVID-Safe Practices: Phase One

Explora is thrilled to invite our members and partners back for reservation-only visits to preview the new Nature’s Notes exhibition and visit Explora’s other outdoor exhibit spaces. Tickets are available for visits Friday through Tuesday via three windows: 9:30am; 12:30pm; and 3pm. Each window is limited to 35 tickets per time slot, so space is limited!

Please make your reservations in advance of your visit. Tickets are not available for purchase at the museum.

Please note: You have a 15 minute window from your reservation time to arrive. If you anticipate being more than 15 minutes late please reschedule your visit online or call reservations at 505-600-6734. Thank you!

COVID-Safe Practices: Phase Two

Designated a “recreational facility” on the State’s red/yellow/green framework, Explora has been waiting patiently to re-open its doors to New Mexico students and families. Closed since March 14, 2020, the re-opening has been a long time coming! Now, with the recent move of Bernalillo County to “green” and now “turquoise,” Explora is putting the finishing touches on its indoor and outdoor exhibit spaces and increasing staff, in order to safely welcome back visitors in a limited capacity on June 1, 2021 (50% capacity if the County remains “turquoise.”) Visitors can expect to see a brand new exhibition, called Nature’s Notes, along with their earlier favorites, like the bubble table, the air rockets, and the Studio Inventivo Maker Space.

In compliance with the Governor’s public health orders and in order to take good care of our community, the following COVID-safe practices will be in place:

  • Guests must make reservations online and are directed to queue at the Nature’s Notes entrance on the east end of Explora at the selected arrival time.
  • Face masks that cover your mouth and nose must be worn at all times.
  • Appropriate PPE is worn by all employees, based on their role and responsibilities, and in adherence to state and local regulations and guidance.
  • If you are feeling sick prior to your scheduled visit, we ask that you stay home.
  • There will be non-invasive thermal camera temperature checks at the entrance. Anyone displaying a temperature over 100.3°F will not be allowed entry and will be asked to reschedule for a different time; this includes that person’s entire party. 
  • Social distancing is expected. Please keep a minimum of six feet away from other visitors and staff. Our team members and signage will help you navigate your visit.
  • Please refrain from eating or drinking during your visit; hopefully, picnics will resume later this summer!
  • Explora is professionally cleaned daily.
  • Hand sanitation stations will be arranged throughout the exhibition space.
  • Explora abides by current State of New Mexico requirements on venue capacity—currently 33% capacity of outdoor spaces—so there will be more room for you to explore!
