The Fine Print:
By visiting the Florida Museum, all visitors voluntarily assume all risks related to COVID-19 exposure and accept and agree to abide by these guidelines and all other signage posted on the premises. The Florida Museum may deny any visitor entry once building or exhibit limits are reached. All visitors ages two (2) and up are welcome to wear a face covering, consisting of a mask, cloth or shield that covers the nose and mouth. Visitors under two (2) years of age are not required to wear a face covering. Visitors are responsible for providing their own face mask or shield. Visitors are encouraged to remain at least six (6) feet, or two (2) meters, apart from others not in their party. Visitors must respect all posted signage and follow all Florida Museum rules and instructions. Any visitor, including members of that visitor’s party, who fails to follow the Florida Museum signage, rules and instructions, may be denied entry or be required to leave the premise. Please call visitor services at 352-846-2000 if you have questions. Thank you for visiting!
