Update: Mall Construction & MOD Closure 8/20- 9/3

Dear MOD Family,

We have been informed by the Capitola Mall management that they will be doing necessary work on the plumbing system in our Museum space. They anticipate the work to start on Monday, August 20. They expect that it will be completed by Thursday, August 30 Monday, September 3 and we plan to be up and running on Friday, August 31 Tuesday, September 4. The work they are doing would greatly impact our visitor experience so MOD will be closed for the duration of the Mall work in our space.

The good news is that we will be taking the opportunity to work on some new and exciting exhibits and freshen up our space during the time of our closure. We know that you will miss the MOD during that time, and we will miss you. As a perk for those of you who have purchased any level of a MOD membership since August 1, we are offering you an additional month’s membership which we will add to the membership you bought. This goes for those of you who have been thinking about being members of the Museum but haven’t done so yet. We will also be extending Summer Explorer memberships through September.

We look forward to seeing you at our exciting “re-opening” on Friday August 31 Tuesday, September 4. If we are able to fully move back into our space before that date, you will be the first to know so keep your eyes turned to our website and social media sites. Please note we will be closed for the Labor Day holiday.

Thanks for your support and understanding during the Mall work.
