Statements from Closed Attractions

Frank Lloyd Wright Architecture at Florida Southern College

Out of an abundance of caution, the Frank Lloyd Wright Visitors Center is closed. No tours will be given until further notice. The health and safety of our community, employees and students is our priority at this time.

Polk Museum of Art

The health, safety, and well-being of our visitors, our community, and our staff is of utmost importance to us during this time of heightened awareness over the COVID-19 virus.

During the time Polk Museum of Art is closed, we will continue its thorough cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing to ensure that when we do re-open the Museum can once again offer a respite in art and culture for all audiences.

Explorations V Children’s Museum

Hello Explorers! The Museum’s job is to curate the world for all children to explore. Right now, that looks different. COVID-19 cases are rising in our area so out of an abundance of caution, the Museum is pausing the public hours. We want to do our part and encourage social distancing so that our community can come back stronger than ever.
