Join the Science History Institute in their museum EVERY SATURDAY for a family-friendly program that highlights the many strange and surprising stories from the history of science!
Their fun, interactive activities are designed for science lovers of all ages. Take an up-close look at interesting items in their handling collection. Stop by their Object Explorer touch table to learn about the science behind everyday items like ice cube trays and LED light bulbs. Chat with their experienced Gallery Guides to find out more about the people responsible for the science embedded in our daily lives.
During your visit, you can also check out their themed “drop-in” tours at 11:30am and 2pm.
Stories of Science takes place weekly on Saturdays. Admission is free and reservations are not required.
