South Florida Museum Offers 'Cabin Fever Relief'

Hurricane Irma


South Florida Museum fared well during the hurricane, sustaining many downed branches and the like, but reporting no major damage. Staff remained onsite throughout the hurricane to ensure the safety of the rehabilitating manatees. All staff and manatees weathered the storm with no issues. 

The Museum opens today, with full power and air conditioning, and offering Cabin Fever Relief—half-priced admission through Friday, so the community can come in out of the heat and enjoy the museum’s collections and exhibits, as well as a special Planetarium and Rehab Manatee presentation schedule.

The Museum has also canceled two programs, originally scheduled to take place on today: Lunch & Learn and think + drink (science). The program topics will be rescheduled for later dates. Refunds will be given for those who had already purchased tickets for these programs.

The Museum has also rescheduled the Snooty Memorial Open House that was originally slated to take place Sunday, Sept. 10. The Memorial Open House has been postponed to noon to 5pm on Sunday, Sept. 24.
