Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is set to reopen to the public in June

Fort Worth, TX (May 11, 2021) — The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is excited to announce its reopening to the public on Friday, June 25. The Museum closed its doors for several months in 2020 and 2021 in response to guidance from local, state, and federal health officials, and has remained closed through the Spring due to extensive water damage from the winter storms in February. 

Museum staff is excited to unveil several new and reimagined experiences that they have been working on throughout the closure. 

This June, the Museum will launch the Current Science Studio, a brand-new 2,500 square-foot exhibit sponsored by a $255,000 grant from Facebook. Anchoring the new exhibit space will be Science On a Sphere® (SOS), a giant global display system suspended from the ceiling developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).  

In addition to the Current Science Studio, the Museum will reopen the Children’s Museum, Noble Planetarium, Cattle Raisers Museum, DinoLabs, DinoDig®, and the Heritage Gallery. The Omni Theater, however, will remain closed indefinitely. 

Reopening Schedule 

Following the public reopening, the Museum will be open Friday and Saturday from 10 AM – 5 PM and Sunday from Noon – 5 PM, reserving the weekdays for the Museum’s Little Scholars Program. 

The Museum continues to take safety seriously. To protect the health of visitors and staff, the Museum will reopen in accordance with current public health and safety guidelines. Visit the Museum’s website to learn about the Museum’s updated health and safety protocols for reopening.
