At The Bishop


This year on Giving Tuesday, we want to give back to members of our Discovery Society! As a special thank you for your ongoing support to The Bishop Museum of Science and Nature, members of The Bishop’s Discovery Society are invited to join us for an exclusive Open House on December 1.

The Open House will include a live presentation by Planetarium Manager Howard Hochhalter, “Curator’s Choice” — a close-up look at items from our collections with Chief Curator Matthew D. Woodside — and an opportunity to talk about manatees with members of the Parker Manatee Rehabilitation Habitat Animal Care staff.

Members who attend will also receive an additional 10 percent off purchases in the Museum Store during the Open House — a perfect opportunity to find unique gifts for everyone on your list while you save money for the holidays!

To follow social distancing guidelines, we’re offering two different times for the Open House. Masks are required.

Choose your time and register now!
