Connect (or reconnect) with your sense of wonder at the Museum of Natural History this summer. A free, drop-in welcome, fam-friendly, summer-fun program designed with elementary and jr. high students in mind, but suitable for all-ages! We know summers are long when your kiddos aren't in school–we've got your back, parents! Mornings @ The Museum are a perfect way to keep busy (with the TV off), learn cool stuff, and stay cool! Each event will feature a different theme with an activity.

"Come for the fun, stay for the A/C"
