5:00pm to 8:00pm
Children's Discovery Museum and Discovery Woods (until dusk)
Tonight’s program: Observe, predict, experiment, and splash with a Museum Educator from 5:30 – 7:00pm. We will conduct an investigation of things that sink and float! Test natural materials, large and small, to see what sinks, what floats, and what stays in between. Some of the results may surprise you! This program is weather dependent.
Free with pre-registration

Come join in all the fun during this special free evening especially for families with members on the autism spectrum! Dinner, including a gluten free option, will be provided. Pre-registration required at as space is limited.

Please note: The Science Discovery Museum will be closed for expansion and renovation. The Children’s Discovery Museum and Discovery Woods will be open. Discovery Woods will close at dusk.
