The Bishop offers engaging exhibits as well as educational programs which interpret the scientific and cultural knowledge of Florida, the world, and our universe. In addition to the permanent exhibits, the museum features a constantly changing lineup of temporary exhibitions – offering something new to discover with each visit.
