South Florida Museum to Reopen After Hurricane Irma with CABIN FEVER RELIEF: Half-Priced Museum Admission

The South Florida Museum remains closed today, Tuesday, Sept. 12, however we will return to regular business hours beginning Wednesday, Sept. 13.
Manatee Care and facility staff remained onsite at the Museum throughout the hurricane to ensure the safety of our rehabilitating manatees — Randall, Gale and Baca. The manatees and the Museum fared well and we are happy to say that the Museum facility is in full working order with power and air conditioning.

Museum staff and Board invite the community to join us for CABIN FEVER RELIEF: featuring half-priced Museum admission Wednesday, Sept. 13 through Friday, Sept. 15. The Museum has full power and air conditioning, so we’d like to help local families get the kids out of the house and beat the heat! The Museum will offer a special Planetarium and Rehab Manatee presentation schedule. The offer applies to full-day admission. And don’t forget – South Florida Museum Members always enjoy FREE Museum admission.

The Museum has also canceled two programs, originally scheduled to take place on Wednesday, Sept. 13:

The program topics will be rescheduled for later dates. Refunds will be given for those who had already purchased tickets for these Lunch & Learn and think + drink programs. Please contact Tish Sacks at [email protected] for more information.
