Several months after its forced closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Wildling Museum will reopen to the public on Saturday, Nov. 7.
New, modified, public walk-in hours will be in effect from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Museum visitors are invited to view the "20/20: A Retrospective" exhibition, which represents a nod to the Wildling’s 20-year history. The exhibition will be on display in the Valley Oak Gallery through Feb. 14.
Also on view will be the recently extended main floor exhibition, "Starry Nights: Visions of the Night Sky." The exhibit runs through Jan. 31, 2021.
The overpass project which recently received a commitment of $5 million from the California Wildlife Conservation Board will provide a safe way for many species of wildlife to cross the eight-lane 101 Freeway in Agoura Hills.
Current Wildling Museum members also may visit by appointment beginning Wednesday, Oct. 28. Appointments can be scheduled from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday by contacting Julie Mock at firstname.lastname@example.org or 805-688-1082.
Santa Barbara County Health Department COVID-19 reports will be regularly assessed, which may result in adjusted hours, according to a spokesperson.
Visitors are advised to review current COVID-19 policies and procedures prior to a museum visit.
