EXCITED FOR OPENING
The Museum staff has been working to continue providing fun learning experiences digitally through its Discovery Lab Online Program. That same team has been working to create new, safe experiences in the Museum. President Van A. Romans puts it, “We are so excited to finally reopen our doors to the Fort Worth community. I can’t wait to see happy families experiencing our Museum in a way that is both safe and fun.”
Members, in particular, have been fantastic in supporting the Museum during the closure. As Denise Wilkerson, Director of Development, explains, “We want to thank our members for their patience and support during this unique time. We want to create a fun welcome-back experience for our members, with exclusive access and programs.”
The Museum was established in 1941, is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums and is an Affiliate of the Smithsonian Institute. Anchored by its rich collections, the Museum is dedicated to lifelong learning. It engages guests through creative, vibrant programs and exhibits interpreting science and the history of Texas and the Southwest. For more information, visit www.fortworthmuseum.org.
