$5 per person (includes museum admission; does not include planetarium admission)
Join a tour of the Museum’s underworld – the basement vaults! If you are tantalized by what’s on exhibit, discover the 99% most people never see. See bats, mini-beasts, vultures, spiders, and more… many have never been on public view! Do not miss this rare chance to explore the collections in storage in this behind-the-scenes, underground tour! (Note: Vaults are only accessible by stairs.)

2:00pm: NEW! Max Goes to the Moon Fulldome Planetarium Show
$3 per person (includes museum admission); free admission for costumed visitors
Ever wonder what it’s like to go to the Moon? This new show, based on the children’s book, “Max Goes to the Moon” by Dr. Jeffrey Bennett, takes viewers on such an adventure. (Note: This fulldome planetarium show DOES NOT include a brief tour of the night sky, using the planetarium’s Zeiss star projector.)

Please note: Children must be age 4 and older to enter the planetarium and the vaults.
