We are thrilled to be fully open and back to serving the curiosity and sense of adventure that our guests have.
We want to remind all of our guests that we are staying vigilant, continuing to monitor and follow recommendations and mandates from the CDC, and governing parties in regards to Covid-19 & Variants.
We are currently in compliance with the City of Philadelphia’s Mandate, requiring masks to be worn indoors unless proof of vaccination or valid exemption is provided.
