Science at the Museum


Science Tuesdays!

Science Tuesdays is an ongoing educational experience, offering science programming based on changing themes each month. Science Tuesdays take place throughout the day every Tuesday at the Museum and include a variety of activities and interactive displays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

November – Science of the Brain

The Museum will join up with partners who have specialized knowledge of neuroscience to create table displays that inform participants about the brain. Teasers and optical illusions will give your brain a good challenge as well!

Upcoming Months:
