Visit | Pensacola MESS Hall



For caregivers seeking an engaging experience for their young learners during the summer extended break, registration is open for additional sessions of our Science Sampler day-camp . Please visit our Summer Camps page for more info.

Plan Your Visit In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and due to the hands-on format of the MESS Hall experience, we are taking measures to help protect you and our staff :

  • Reservations are recommended.
  • Capacity is limited. All visitors with reservations will have at least 2 hours for their visit. Walk-up visitors will be given an estimate of time.
  • We require that visitors ages 10 and up wear masks and ask that younger children wear them, too
  • We have modified our hands-on exhibits and “mess kits” to be better suited for sanitizing and/or switched to single-use materials
  • Staff will be wearing masks, maintaining physical distance from guests, and performing additional sanitizing
