Our Water Stories Open House celebrates 50 years of the Clean Water Act, the landmark legislation aimed at reducing water pollution and improving water quality.

Learn how we’ve journeyed from oil slicks and polluted riverbanks to clear streams and healthy fish.

Visit our museum and take a curator’s tour of our Downstream exhibition to explore histories of water analysis and policy.

Explore pop-up activities featuring anti-pollution board games and water testing demonstrations, and see rare collections showcasing our changing understanding of nature from the 1600s to the 1970s.

Admission is free and no reservations are necessary.
