From September through May the Museum hosts a monthly Family Day celebrating a new exhibition or a fascinating natural science. Hosted by our education department’s staff and instructors, we’ll conduct experiments, make a craft to take home, and provide a variety of extra activities for a fun and educational family experience. You might even have a chance to meet one of our scientists!
Join us for Balboa Park’s Science Family Day as we delve into the world of rocks and minerals. San Diego is one of the most famous gem-producing regions in the world, but where do these minerals come from and how are they formed? We’ll perform experiments, learn about different rocks and minerals and make a craft to take home. Get ready to rock!
Come see us at the San Diego Science & Engineering Festival on Saturday, March 22 at PETCO Park.
This Family Day is generously sponsored by The Heller Foundation of San Diego.
Celebrate the Earth and save the planet! Join us as we honor Earth Day and help keep our environment clean by turning recyclable trash into treasure. We’ll provide the recycled supplies, all you need to do is bring the creativity!
Butterflies are some of our favorite insects. Join us as we discover more about these beautiful and fascinating creatures. We’ll learn about life cycles, different types of butterflies and you can make a craft to take home.
There’s a lot going on at the rocky water’s edge. Tide pools are abundant with interesting sea animals. Join as we discover what lies along San Diego’s coastline. We’ll have specimens, activities and crafts to help us celebrate and protect our local tide pools.
