Mark Earth Day Weekend at the Museum!

News posts

This Saturday is Earth Day, and around the country, folks are marking the day by celebrating our planet and the important role of science in our lives. If you’re marching for science, you can start your day with us at 9 am on Saturday, April 22. Join Museum staff and scientists on the front steps at Central Park West and 79th St for doughnuts, coffee, and conversation about why supporting science has never been more important.

 


If you’re planning to join us before March for Science NYC, please RSVP here, and make sure to bring a reusable cup for coffee—you don’t want to start Earth Day off by making trash, right?

 


If you’re spending Earth Day at the Museum, you’ll be able to find special features in our halls all day long, including conservation-themed guided tours, film screenings of Saving My Tomorrow in Milstein Hall of Ocean Life, and updates to the Museum’s Explorer app. Check here to find out more details.

And of course the Museum’s usual slate of shows and exhibitions will be continuing uninterrupted. You can visit the underwater world of Humpback Whales in the LeFrak Theater, experience the cultures of ancient Egypt and Peru in Mummies, and stroll among striking insects from around the world in The Butterfly Conservatory.

However you want to spend this weekend, we can’t wait to see you!
