From the Milwaukee Art Museum to the Harley Davidson Museum, some of Wisconsin’s largest museums and cultural institutions have reopened to the public in recent weeks.

Many smaller museums around the state are doing the same, yet face their own unique set of challenges when it comes to safely reopening.

One example is the Above & Beyond Children’s Museum in downtown Sheboygan. The museum began a phased reopening March 13, allowing museum members to return with reservations and at a limited capacity. They plan to fully reopen to the public soon. One of the biggest challenges for the museum to reopen has been figuring out sanitation procedures.

Museum Visitor and Volunteer Services Manager Drew Olenick has been busy cleaning everything from top to bottom. When Spectrum News 1 visited, he was sanitizing plastic fruits and vegetables in an interactive grocery store display at the museum.

Olenick says he could have never expected a year ago that this is what his job at Above and Beyond would look like.
