Regular Hours

Welcome to the Be With Me Playseum Bethesda!

The Bethesda Playseum has reopened its doors, but with limited hours.

New safety guidelines
For the safety of all we have had to switch things up a bit from the way things were done in the past.
The most obvious one is that for the time being there will only be a few families in the Playseum at a time,
so you and your children will feel like you have the Playseum all to yourself.

The Bethesda Playseum has reopened its doors but with limited hours.
We are open Mon-Sat 10am-3pm. Sundays- closed to the public -but available for private parties of 10 kids or less.

Here are some basic guidelines to know before you plan your next visit:

* Temperatures of adults will be taken at the door.

* Come in with a Mask (children under 9 do not need one).

* We are NOT putting wristbands on you but are expecting you to put them on yourself and your own children upon entry.

* Call ahead and make a reservation for 1 hr, 2 hr or 3 hr time slots. If you pre-pay by phone you will receive 3 Playseum dollars when you arrive. (240-507-8965 Annapolis or 301-807-8028 Bethesda). IF YOU ARE A MEMBER, YOU STILL NEED TO CALL AND REGISTER. Thank you for understanding.

* If you happen to walk by and want to come in, just ask if we have availability, we will let you know.  We are only allowing a few families in the Playseum at a time, so that we can properly sanitize between rooms that have been visited.

* Until further notice, we will not be offering group story times, group pet shop times or group snack times.

 * We are only allowing one family in a City Shop room at a time. Children and parents must stay together.

* Our friendly staff are here and available to individually read a story to your child or show them the pets if you would like us to.

* We have additional sanitization stations throughout the Playseum

* Staff are taking extra precautionary levels of sanitation each day. Staff are wearing masks and required to have temperatures taken before clocking in.
