First Annual Members Day

Celebrate the completion of new and improved exhibits that tell stories from pre-Columbian archaeology  to excavation of a Tyrannosaurus rex fossil, to the role of microbes to the color red in nature. Try reassembling our human skeleton and create your own wildflower seed bomb. Plus, bring a blanket and stay for ice cream and a movie: at 8:30, the museum will offer the 1982 classic E.T. on an inflatable screen on the south lawn.
