Come Learn as a Family With Us!
On the weekends, we have Critter Clubs for 3- to 5-year-olds, and Junior Scientists for 6- to 9-year-olds. In Curator's Cupboard events, our staff brings out special items not usually on display.
Butterflies and Spiders
Outside the Museum's South Entrance, you'll find enclosed habitats filled with life.
From April to September, the Butterfly Pavilion is fluttering with over 40 species of live butterflies.
From late September to November, the Spider Pavilion houses web-weavers, hard at work. Come check out their intricate webs!
See Creatures Come to Life
If you want to see creatures come alive, check out our Dinosaur Encounters and Encounters Jr. programs.
