Programs showcase specific projects within the broad scope of the Museum’s work in science, education, and exhibition and feature relevant behind-the-scenes access to our world-renowned collections, active laboratories, classrooms, and work spaces. Museum scientists, educators, and leadership host presentations and tours—and invite you to continue the conversation over cocktails.
