Wonderfeet Kids’ Museum reopened to the public, May 1

Taso Burger Nights Tuesdays May 11 and May 18 to benefit museum

RUTLAND—Wonderfeet Kids’ Museum opened its doors to the public and welcomed visitors to downtown Rutland once again starting May 1. Wonderfeet has resumed regular public hours for guests without special reservations and is open Thursdays through Saturdays 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and Sundays 1-4 p.m. throughout the spring.

Wonderfeet has tried to maintain some level of operations throughout 2020 and 2021, but stopped offering public hours in November of 2020 due to rising community cases. Since then, they have offered small programs like their parents/babies group and Homeschool Club while also offering private bookings of the museum. With the reopening, families will once again be able to visit without reservations for the regular $5 per person admission.

Wonderfeet will continue to offer its free Monday play and support group for parents with babies and toddlers and its weekly Homeschool Club program. It Takes a Village: A Community of Parents meets Mondays from 10-11:30 a.m. Homeschool Club meets weekly, with programs for preschoolers and grade school students taking place on alternating weeks. Because not all families will feel comfortable socializing in public right away, Wonderfeet will still have flexibility in its schedule to accommodate families that are looking to reserve the museum for private playdates.

Come summer, Wonderfeet will be serving area families with a variety of summer camp offerings appealing to both preschoolers and older kids.

As part of the celebration of Wonderfeet’s reopening, Taso on Center will be hosting two Burger Nights on Tuesdays May 11 and May 18, with proceeds going towards the museum. 

“We love having Wonderfeet as a neighbor,” said Taso owner, Jay Sabataso. “They’re part of the energy of downtown and we just want to celebrate the good things happening in Rutland.”

Wonderfeet’s Executive Director, Danielle Monroe, said, “We love being part of the Center Street neighborhood. Jay has been a great supporter of the museum, and so have many others! We’re looking forward to a spring and summer that is more normal, where we see our whole community out enjoying the shopping, restaurants, and art Downtown.”

On the evenings of May 11 and May 18, Taso will offer $15 burger and fries meals that guests can call ahead and order for pick-up between 4:30-7 p.m. Wonderfeet volunteers will deliver the orders to your car and have Wonderfeet merchandise like t-shirts and bumper stickers available for sale. You can call Wonderfeet prior to 4:30 to place your order on Tuesday afternoons, (802) 282-2678.

All proceeds will benefit Wonderfeet Kids’ Museum.

Wonderfeet Kids’ Museum is located at 11 Center St. in Rutland, operations including outreach and ongoing exhibits and programs to meet the needs of our community. For more information visit
