All Day

At The Bishop


As a proud Smithsonian Affiliate, The Bishop Museum of Science and Nature is pleased to once again announce our participation in Smithsonian magazine’s Museum Day — a day that allows guests to visit select museums nationwide for free.
Museum Day represents a nationwide commitment by Smithsonian to access, equity and inclusion. More than 250,000 people downloaded tickets for last year’s event, and Museum Day 2019 is expected to attract more museum-goers than ever before. The event at The Bishop is sponsored by Mosaic.
Tickets are available free online at
