New Museum Hours

 The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History has announced that it is changing its public hours in order to better serve the community. Beginning on January 1, 2010, the Museum and Museum Store will be open to the public on Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Although closed to the public on Mondays, the Museum’s business offices will remain open. Monday groups and scheduled programs will continue to be available by appointment; and Dollar Day Admission will move to the First Tuesday of each month. Existing group program admission rates will remain unchanged on Dollar Day. The Museum will also be open in the evening for events and group programming by appointment.

“We hope this change to the Museum schedule will enable us to be more flexible in scheduling after hours events and programs at the Museum, while dedicating time each week for essential administrative work, continuing education for staff, as well as special activities and projects that would otherwise interfere with regular Gallery operations,” explained Dr. Deborah Cowman, Executive Director of the Museum. “The Museum’s commitment to education remains a high priority, and we will continue to provide the many docent-led school tours and special educational programs for smaller student groups five days a week.”
