They are family-friendly events, occurring monthly, that introduces the Museum's live animals to visitors and weave in science topics, such as metamorphosis and camouflage. Our educators are experts at bringing fun and knowledge together!

On occasion, we do change the date, so watch this website. See below for upcoming classes.
Everbody Loves Babies
Do animals have families? Some animals are protective parents, just like people! We’ll sing a turtle love song, play a matchmaking game, and make cute critter crafts! Love is in the air!
Join us at Critter Club to meet a variety of snails and slugs that call Los Angeles “home.” Through stories, crafts, and a visit from an animal friend, we will learn how to help museum scientists study these slimy city dwellers!
Hiss! Chirp! Croak! Who makes these sounds? Let’s meet some noisy animals, and make some commotion of our own!
Cold Weather Quest
Birds fly south for the winter, but what do turtles do? Help us find winter habitats for our animal friends.
We are grateful to our Institutional Partners
