We are very excited to be opening our newly renovated Discovery Corner! Please stop by to "Make, Play and Learn"! Join us as we unveil our newly remodeled space where young visitors (and their favorite adult) can discover, design, doodle, and more while developing their curiosity and making connections to the natural world.
The new and improved space encourages children to touch real museum specimens, share a story from our curated collection of children's books in a cozy corner, spend meaningful time together and make new friends!
In cooperation with Boulder's Pollinator Month festivities, the opening theme "Let's BEE friends!" celebrates the good work bees, butterflies, moths, beetles, ants, flies, and even wasps do as pollinators.

Family programs are offered throughout the year. Monthly themed Family Days are offered from October through April.  We attend many outreach events and hope that you'll stop by our booth when we are out and about!
