Sternberg Museum – Public announcement regarding the coronavirus (COVID -19)

To all of our visitors, supporters, and followers,


Due to the concerns caused by the coronavirus (COVID – 19) pandemic, the Sternberg Museum of Natural History will be closed until further notice. All Sternberg Museum public events including, Pokémon Day and the Bug Whisperer, are postponed. Please check our website and our social media regularly for updates.

We understand our patrons will be disappointed with this news. However, we have come up with a bit of a solution. Starting this week, the staff at the Sternberg Museum will be hosting a Facebook Live mini-series called the Dome from Home. Get your natural history fix here as museum staff discusses topics from prehistoric monsters to modern-day marvels. See live feeding and care of the Sternberg animals or get a live tour of our collections. Tune in twice a day Monday – Friday at 10 am and 2 pm CST.


Please keep an eye on our website and social media for any updates to the hours of operations. We will keep you informed of any changes.

Stay healthy and safe!
