Family Days

Join us for monthly Family Days at theNAT, September through May, as we celebrate the natural world and our Museum. Each month has been uniquely themed to allow us to explore nature’s wonders, participate in hands-on activities, and create crafts to take home.

Each event runs from 11 AM to 3 PM, with Ms. Frizzle offering Family Day participants a wild and wacky performance in the Museum’s giant-screen theater at noon. Wind up your mental motor and cruise on down to surf some brain waves with the Frizz, from The Magic School Bus® series.

Family Days are included with paid general admission and free for members. Not a member? Join today.
