Night at the Museum: Out of this World
Trek through the Museum of Natural History after dark for a fun evening of discovery! Each month, we explore a different area of science, technology, history, and culture with interactive demonstrations, fun activities, and hands-on materials. Each child will receive an official MNH Miner Helmet with head lamp to keep, and the group will traverse the darkened mammal gallery as part of the evening’s activities. Museum staff, volunteers, and occasionally UI scientists and scholars lead each program. Parents drop off children at the beginning of the night and pick them up when the program is over. The program is designed for children in grades 1-5. Thanks to Gilbert Street Papa John’s Pizza in Iowa City for sponsoring Night at the Museum.
