Phase 1 Reopening Announced
On Saturday, May 16, we will reopen the Pensacola Museum of Art and the T.T. Wentworth, Jr. Florida State Museum.
The safety of our visitors and staff is the utmost importance to us; therefore, we will only be open on Saturdays and Wednesdays from 10:00AM until 4:00PM. These staggered days will allow staff plenty of time to fully sanitize the museums between open days.
We will be operating at 25% capacity at both locations. In order to ensure the social distancing guidelines, we will only offer online $5.00 timed tickets and staff will be situated on each floor reminding visitors of the safety protocols. These $5 tickets are good for both museums and are good for only the day. Click here to purchase a ticket.
Members will need to also register for a timed ticket prior to visiting the museums to ensure entrance capacity is maintained. Member discount is automatic when you log into your account. If you need assistance logging into your account, email Wendi Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each visitor will be offered free disposable masks at the entrances of the museums if they do not have a mask. Hand sanitizer stations will be placed throughout both locations.
While these two museums will be open the two museum stores will remain closed for the Phase 1 reopening. Online sales are still available. All educational programs and events are still cancelled until further notice. This includes Afterschool Art Club, Next Generation Homeschool, Art Academy for Autism, Open Studio, Family Sunday, Parent’s Night Out, Yoga in the Gallery, and Preschool Art Time.
Staff is developing our reopening plan per the suggestions of the American Alliance of Museums which states, "a gradual approach [which] allows your museum to prioritize health and safety while taking progressive steps to restore regular operations."

COLLECTION UNCORKED x WINE WITH HILARY
The PMA has teamed up with Wine with Hilary Shaffer and Pot Roast and Pinot to bring our popular Collection Uncorked wine tasting into your home!
Collection Uncorked invites visitors to learn more about our permanent collection through curated wine and art pairings. Chief Curator, Anna Wall, and Certified Specialist of Wine, Hilary Shaffer, collaborate to match works of art with wines whose flavor profile or origins complement the art, artist or subject matter. This limited edition curated box of three wines allows you to recreate the experience at home. Inside you’ll find reproductions of the works of art with narratives to guide you on your journey. We hope you enjoy learning more about our collection and discover some exciting new wines along the way.
Proceeds from programs like Collection Uncorked help support our educational initiatives and dynamic exhibition schedule. We appreciate your ongoing dedication to the museum and look forward to greeting you again in-person soon!
Each wine box is $65. Order by 12PM Wednesday of each week, and pickup at Pot Roast & Pinot the following Saturday.
EXHIBITIONS ON VIEW (VIRTUALLY)
Though the Pensacola Museum of Art is currently closed to visitors, we will continue serving the community through our website and social media accounts. We will be posting virtual tours of our exhibitions, highlights from the collection, and art activities for all ages. We hope these ideas and images will provide some inspiration and distraction during these uncertain times.
