(Posted March 16, 2020)

As part of the effort to stem COVID-19 spread and help keep everyone in our community as safe as possible, the Wagner will be closed to the public until further notice and all public programs are postponed through at least April 15.

Postponed programs include: 

  • Evening with an Expert: A Flight Through Time with Dr. Spencer Galen on March 19
  • Recycling Realities with Professor Kevin Cannon, which was scheduled to begin on March 24
  • Weeknights at the Wagner: Confronting Coastal Risk in an Age of Rising Sea Levels with Dr. Robert Kopp on April 15
  • Science on Tap’s April programs, including Science on Tap, Untapped: Game Night, are canceled until further notice.

All scheduled field trips, school programs and lessons are also canceled.

In the weeks ahead, we hope to set new dates these for postponed programs and will reopen to the public when it is safe to do so. We will also work with our partners to reschedule the courses and programs that take place at other locations.

Wagner staff will be working remotely during this period and will be accessible by email or phone. You can contact us through our individual emails or via We will try to respond as quickly as possible. We will also check our individual voicemail messages and return calls.

We will keep you updated on our schedule and programs and share news here, through our newsletter and social media. While we're closed, enjoy science, history, and the Wagner's collections through our Facebook and Instagram profiles.

We thank you for your support. Please take care of yourselves and we hope to see you soon.
