As the city of Cleveland prepares to host the NFL Draft, many businesses and organizations are making adjustments to their operational schedule. 

On Wednesday, The Great Lakes Science Center, a proud sponsor of the draft, announced that it will close its facility to the public from April 12 through May 14.

During its closure, the Science Center will host a series of private events surrounding the NFL Draft Celebration. While closed, the Science Center will continue to offer a host of virtual programs through its website and YouTube Channel. 

Prior to reopening on May 16, a special event just for Science Center members will take place on Saturday, May 15. The details for this member -only experience have not yet been announced.

Following its closure, the Science Center will resume its normal summer operation schedule of seven days a week, after operating under reduced hours due to the ongoing pandemic. 

"Pandemic health and safety protocols will still be in place, including operating with a reduced overall guest capacity, requiring guests to book their tickets in advance online and wear a facemask," the Science Center said in a press release.
