RMSC to cut back hours due to COVID-19 impact on visits

Nov 25, 2020

Rochester Museum & Science Center and the Strasenburgh Planetarium are temporarily reducing hours beginning Monday, November 30.

RMSC will be open to the public on Fridays (9:30 to 5:00 pm), Saturdays (9:30 am to 5:00 pm) and Sundays, (11am to 5pm).

The organization says that the reduction in hours is due to a number of months with lower than expected visitation due to COVID-19.
