Events and activities at the museum


The Museum has a dynamic public program that offers visitors of all ages the opportunity to learn in a truly unique setting. Every Sunday, there are discovery workshops for families, dinosaur tours, a Super Science Documentary film and often a Nature Talk or Walk.

We also host the Freaky Fridays and Cutting Edge lectures, and other special events throughout the year. Come and join us! Or, you can watch many of these events here on BCool television or as a Webcast.
