A Message to Our Community

Dear Museum Friends,


The Buena Vista Museum of Natural History and Science will be closed to the public from March 15 - April 14, 2020.


This decision was not made lightly, but on the recommendation from The California Department of Public Health regarding concerns to help limit exposure of the COVID 19 Virus.  We do not know of any staff or visitors who have been exposed. However, health and safety for all is our main concern. All events scheduled during this time through the museum will be cancelled or postponed to a later date. In addition, BVM will extend membership expiration dates for the closure period. We are taking this one week at a time. Please keep an eye on our website for further updates. We thank you in advance for understanding during unprecedented time.



Koral Hancharick

Executive Director for BVM
