Bishop After Dark
Bishop After Dark is a monthly program inviting guests to enjoy evenings at The Bishop. Held every fourth Thursday of the month, BAD is anything but as the Museum features special guests and multi-disciplinary experiences including live entertainment, art and music demonstrations, dancing, trivia, and more!
IQuest is a monthly program for smart, curious middle school students in grades 6 through 8. While each IQuest is different, you can always expect challenging projects and games that inspire out-of-the-box solutions to real world problems.
Budding scientists ages 2-5 can bring their favorite grown-ups to explore and discover a variety of science and nature topics in the Mosaic Backyard Universe. The program sparks kids’ natural curiosity using imaginative play, crafts, stories, songs and more! Please note: This program does not include Museum admission.
On the 4th Wednesday of the month, the stars are the stars during a live evening focused on the stars, night skies, latest news in the world of astronomy and more! Some Stelliferous programs include discussion of where our stars, planets and constellations are headed; others include topical astronomy lectures about ongoing research. Both types of programs offer plenty of opportunity for Q&A!
Tales Under the Tree
Gather the kiddos and settle in for a story to spark their curiosity about science and nature! Join us at The Bishop for a special story time. Tales Under the Tree features a different science or nature-themed book each month, followed by a craft, game, or fun facts related to the story. At the end of each month, a video of the book reading will also be featured on The Bishop’s Facebook page. Want to watch previous Tales Under the Tree stories? Click here!

think + drink / science
Our monthly think + drink / scienceprogram transforms The Planetarium into a forum of discussion where you can grab a beer, glass of wine or a soft drink and learn about science in a relaxed, informal setting. The night’s expert gives a short presentation then opens the floor for questions and discussion.
Yoga at The Bishop
Join us on Sunday mornings for Yoga at The Bishop! Enjoy Manatee Yoga on the first, third and fourth Sundays of the month as we alternate between gentle and power yoga. Then, bring the family on the second Sunday of the month as we host Family Yoga in the Mosaic Backyard Universe.
