Our dino Santa Claws will be making an appearance again this year!

Bring your loved ones and celebrate the holiday season with us!

Photos will be taken on a first-come-first-served basis. Additional activities will be available just for members on the 4th floor in Explore on Four:

  • Science Live!

  • Meet a Polar Bear
    Meet our polar bear from the Mammalogy Collection up close and get your questions answered by Research Curator of Mammalogy, Lisa Gatens.
