The Bishop has a wide variety of displays. It ranges from local history to scientific. Their manatee display is very nice--you get two views of the animals--above and below the water. The planetarium was a highlight of our visit.

Truly something for everyone. Beautiful building, fabulous planetarium, manatees! A deep collection of metal artifacts by Native people who scavenged shipwrecks and created their own items, and many pre-Columbian figures from Central America, among other aspects of indigenous culture from across the US. Very clean. I can’t think of an aspect of human culture or natural history that doesn’t receive some coverage here at the same time as local history is thoroughly explained. Well done! I now live locally and I would definitely take visitors here.…

3 museums in one, Planetarium, Manatee Rehab, and Local Archeology Museum. All quite good. I spent several hours in the Planatarium and could have spent more. Better for 3rd grade and up.

This museum charged full price for children when adults get in free. And you have to pay extra to see the planatarium at Bishop Planatarium! Talk about a messed up leadership group. I live here and woll no longer be a donor
