Winter Home School Day: Science of Sound

Thursday, February 28, 10:30 am - 3 pm

Join us for a look at the world of sound as we celebrate our newest exhibition “Medieval to Metal: the Art and Evolution of the Guitar.” We’ll learn about how animals use sound, explore how instruments create sound and create our own instruments, and discover how sound is heard by our ears.  They’ll be time for groups to explore the exhibition and a group lunch period for home schoolers to meet. Younger siblings may attend at no charge but may not be able to participate in all programs. Pre-payment is required.

Members: $17 per child | Non-members: $17 per child
