Weekend Family Fun in South Florida-Now Open!

Happy Weekend Modern Boca Moms and Dads! Here are all of the great MBMom-recommended Boca kids activities and weekend family fun in South Florida that are now OPEN!

Weekend Family Fun in South Florida

Palm Beach Zoo

DATE: Opening June 5th

TIME: 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

During the last two months, it has become abundantly clear that everyone has missed nature and the animals with which we share this great planet. The animals have missed you, too. Zoo staff has taken advantage of this time to deep clean, pressure wash and update several areas of the Zoo. I know you will appreciate their hard work when you return. 

The Zoo will be open with a few exceptions to keep everyone safe:

  • Purchasing tickets online is recommended, so entry to the Zoo is touchless.
  • Staff has updated the flow of the Zoo to be unidirectional, and hand sanitizer stations are available at several locations.
  • Those activities that require visitors to be in close proximity or that don’t allow for enhanced sanitation will be curtailed during this time. That includes postponing keeper talks and shows until it is safe to do so.
  • The carousel and train will also not run during the first phases of reopening.

Flagler Museum | Whitehall in Palm Beach

DATE: Opening June 9th

Whitehall, Henry Flagler’s expansive 75-room mansion dating back to 1902, has stood witness to many historic moments in its 118 years. After a brief closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, its historic gates and vast indoor and outdoor spaces will be reopening this month on a modified schedule and with a new ticketing procedure.

The Museum is proud of its strong reputation as a pristine and beautifully-maintained institution, which has stood the test of time as a symbol of history and accomplishment during its 60-year history. The Flagler Museum looks toward a bright future where every child and every adult who enters Whitehall considers it to be ‘their museum.’

In addition, for your enjoyment, the Museum has extended current exhibitions: Eye to I: Self-Portraits from the National Portrait Gallery (on view through Sep. 20, 2020), and Edward Steichen: In Exaltation of Flowers and Drawn from the Collection (on view through Jan. 3, 2021).
