Family Fun Days
FAMILY FUN DAYS
Every 3rd Saturday of the month the museum hosts Free Family Fun Days for children of all ages and their families. Running from noon-4pm, these events feature a wide variety of crafts, games, and activities on a different monthly theme. While regular admission rates still apply for touring the museum galleries, many of our free Fun Days showcase items from the museum collections for kids to look at and handle, providing a chance for unique hands-on encounters with history, nature, and science.
