The Florida Holocaust Museum recently announced it will be expanding its operating hours. Starting July 28, the museum will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays with the last admission at 4 p.m. After a long closure due to COVID-19, the museum had previously reopened only on weekends.

In addition to extended hours, the museum will also open a new exhibit, “Her Response: Women Artists From the Permanent Collection.” The exhibit is the first to be composed of works from the Florida Holocaust Museum’s permanent collection that are made by women only.

“As the Florida Holocaust Museum approaches its 30th anniversary, we wanted to highlight our significant collection of contemporary art and the powerful female artists that make up a majority of these artworks in the permanent collection,” said Victoria King-Taber, museum registrar and exhibition manager. “Our first-ever exhibition of all female artists features their unique backgrounds and offers thought-provoking perspectives through individual artistic responses to the Holocaust.”

The new exhibit opens July 24 and remains on display through Dec. 26.
