Kids Activities — Museum of Natural History Weekend

We have a long weekend coming up and the Museum of Natural History has activities scheduled for the mad scientist lurking inside your child in Chemistry: Its Elemental!

The Radical Reaction Activity Table and Family Fun Activities are free with museum admission. (Facebook event.)

Check out the ‘Cosmic Origins Spectograph Fulldome Planetarium Show.’

Discover spectroscopy, the science of light, and learn how scientists study the Universe by deciphering clues hidden in light arriving from distant objects. Please note: This fulldome planetarium show DOES NOT include a brief tour of the night sky using the planetarium’s Zeiss star projector.

(Cost: $3 per person/includes museum admission. Children must be age 4 and older to enter the planetarium.)

Take time to poke around the museum. Built in 1896, the building itself is a fascinating artifact. And the bees are in! Today they were being a little lazy and cold.

10am to 4pm, Saturday-Monday, January 18-20, Museum of Natural History and Planetarium, RW Park, 1000 Elmwood Avenue, (directions)
