Dive into a day of family-friendly, water-related activities!

Start with a fun picture book during storytime. This month we’re reading The Water Princess by Susan Verde. We’ll also be decorating our own paper water jugs!

Then explore our Downstream exhibition using our self-guided activity sheet.

Ask questions, find clues, and work together with your group to solve puzzles—and you just might earn a water-themed prize!

Close out your visit to our museum with a stop at our Object Explorer, an interactive touchtable where you can learn the history behind everyday objects like ice-cube trays.


Family Day takes place the third Saturday of each month. Admission is free and no reservations are necessary.
