Start with a fun picture book during storytime. This month we’re reading the Caldecott Award-winning book We Are Water Protectors by Carole Lindstrom.

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.
