February is famous for cold weather and cabin fever, but you can escape both when you visit the Museum this month. 

Did you know that sea anemones provide a home to more than 30 species of clownfish? Learn about the special relationship between these marine animals in the Discovery Room.

Ahead of Valentine’s Day, cozy up for cocktails and conversation at this month's SciCafe and learn all about the emotional bonds that exist between humans. And don't forget to bring the whole family to the Milstein Science Series: The Layers of the Ocean, a day-long festival that delves deep into marine habitats.
