Friendly faces and the sound of a live band welcomed us to the museum's grand halls. Excitement was in the air as we entered the Akeley Hall of African Mammals for the Museum Science Center.

We studied skeletons, examined snakes, and got to know more about the Museum scientists and their work with hands on activities and scientific data.

Then we headed to the Hall of Biodiversity to experience "A Touch of Nature" with Jerry Zelenka. From the baby mice to the live tarantulas, Jerry successfully freaked out all the moms while delighting all of the kids with an entertaining show.

We met a South African tortoise and got to see the reptiles of the rainforest, studying each in their enclosures. We walked through The Dzanga-Sangha Rain Forest and spotted the hidden gorilla and spider monkeys hanging in the trees with tiny flashlights.

There was lots more to explore!
  • On the fourth floor, Tiffany & Co. sponsored a dig for gems, and kids and adults got to customize their own crowns. 
  • A walk through the Milstein Hall of Advanced Mammals led us past Cozy's Cuts for Kids, where kids got styled with funky colored mohawks.
  • To the Galactic Glow Zone, an interactive dance party with glowing rings, bracelets, and an LED hula hoopist.
The Family Party is an annual event featuring awesome entertainment and educational experiences for the entire family! The Museum made sure families will have a great time!
