The Family Party—one of the Museum’s best-loved traditions—features fascinating educational activities and spectacular entertainment for children ages 2–12. Here’s a quick peek at what you can expect at this year’s party:
Museum Science Center
We will feature once again the engaging Museum Science Center where children will have the opportunity to discover the wonders of live animals, extreme specimens, and scientific data. This year’s Scientist Advisory Committee is led by Curators Chris Raxworthy and Mark Siddall.
Meet Lonesome George!
The last known Pinta Island tortoise, Lonesome George has been preserved for future generations and is on display for a limited time before returning to Ecuador. Learn more.
