Our museums remain closed due to COVID-19. While LA County Public Health has entered Phase 3 of the Roadmap to Recovery, allowing for the reopening of museums on June 12, our museums are still slowly welcoming back staff and are in the process of planning for new health and safety protocols in our galleries and gardens. Therefore, we will not be reopening until later in the summer. Sign up here to be the first to know when we will safely re-open to the public and in the meantime, stay connected from home.

No tickets required for this event

Rather than guided tours, on a day such as this, visitors are welcome to explore the museum at their own pace. We will focus on our friends, the bison, offering our guests casual chats, displays, and hands-on activities related to the subject of the day.

Learn the history of the bison in North America. Why do we call them bison rather than buffalo? We’ll look at this creature from a natural history perspective, as well as how he appears in some of the art in the house. And of course, see them in person here in Hart Park!

There will be staff and volunteers stationed around the house to answer questions, bison related or not, and to talk with you about the Hart. There is always some kind of craft activity for our young guests (and the young-at-heart)!
