In addition to the Academy's permanent and changing exhibits, we offer a range of exciting activities throughout the day appropriate for the whole family. Enrich your visit through a movie, naturalist show, watching an Academy scientist at work, or more. Activities are free with admission unless otherwise noted.
Today at the Museum
Thursday Apr 24 2:00 PM-3:00 PM
Join two ridiculously cute hedgehogs (and a few Academy educators) for a special meet-and-greet. As we introduce you to our brand-new hedgehogs, education staff (assisted by Marty the Moose, our puppet storyteller), will share a children’s book about hedgehogs. You can also watch as our hedgies help themselves to a mid-afternoon feast.
Thursday Apr 24 2:30 PM-3:00 PM
Join our teacher-naturalists as they explore natural history in these informal and interactive presentations involving live animals and/or museum specimens. Topics and locations vary daily.
