Spring Events

We have lots coming up this term at the Museum, with our first Science Saturday (a beading and mineral workshop) taking place on February 13th. For more information on upcoming events, please see our Science Saturday and Science Cafe pages

Sandhill Symphony: A Natural History of High Pine

Note: Sandhill Symphony is currently being updated, and will be back on display February 10th.

Along with its permanent collection of minerals and earth science displays, including one about Smithsonian benefactor, James Smithson (a mineralogist in his own right), the museum celebrates the opening of a new photographic exhibit
