June 2017 Museum Openings:
The Gillespie Museum will be open for these special events during the month of June:
June 21 and 28 Wildflower Wednesdays (Outdoor activities exploring Florida native wildflowers and pollinators.)
10:00 am – noon
June 16 and 23 Family Fridays (Open house in the museum.)
11:00 am – 4:00 pm
The Gillespie Museum will be closed during the month of July, preparing new exhibits and programs.
This small exhibit was inspired by Nicholas Pearson’s The Seven Archetypal Stones, which explores some of the lessons—geological, historic, cultural, and spiritual—of the mineral world. Our small display and guided walk through the museum’s collections tell a few stories about these seven captivating stones.
A small exhibit featuring some perspectives on H2O. Robert Sitler (Professor, Modern Languages) provides a videographic tour of a variety of sites in our watershed; Kirsten Work (Professor, Biology) offers a study of spring snails.
Special events in June.
Closed to visitors in July.
