The Bishop Museum will reopen its doors to the public on June 3. “As an important part of the Southwest Florida community for more than 70 years, The Bishop is pleased to carefully begin welcoming guests back to our campus,” said Museum CEO Brynne Anne Besio. “We’ve made important changes — following the best guidance available from local and state governments, the Health Department and the CDC — to help keep our guests and staff as safe as possible.”

The Bishop has tens of thousands of square feet of space, making it easy for visitors to maintain social distance. We're also implementing some additional changes that you need to know about before your next visit: New hours with timed entry: 10am to 3pm Wednesday-Saturday, with timed entry at 10-11am, 11am-noon, noon-1pm and 1-2pm. Noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, with timed entry at noon-1, 1-2, 2-3, and 3-4 pm.Closed on Monday and Tuesday. Seniors-only hours: Starting June 10, seniors 65 and older can exclusively enjoy the Museum from 10am to noon every Wednesday in June. Touch-free check-in — we strongly encourage guests to purchase tickets online in advance at www.BishopScience.org. Guests may also purchase advance tickets by phone at 941-746-4131.  New one-way traffic flow through the exhibitions — we will have new signs directing guests through the route. Staff and guests will also be required to wear masks. (Guests must bring their own.)

The Museum Store is also open and following new touch-free procedures. A wide selection of educational and fun products is available, including puzzles, children’s books, science kits and plushes of manatees and other animals. During this phase of reopening, The Planetarium and the Mosaic Backyard Universe will remain temporarily closed, and the Museum will have reduced ticket prices: Adults, $16; Seniors, $15; Youth/Student, $12; Ages 5-11: $10; and Ages 4 and younger, free with a paying adult.
