Family Days

From September through May the Museum hosts a monthly Family Day celebrating a new exhibition or a fascinating natural science. Hosted by our education department’s staff and instructors, we’ll conduct experiments, make a craft to take home, and provide a variety of extra activities for a fun and educational family experience. You might even have a chance to meet one of our scientists!

  • There is no extra charge with the price of admission and Family Days and members are always free.

    Family Days are always 11 AM to 3 PM.
