Weekends at UMMNH
Saturday, February 8 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pmFREE
In addition to the great exhibits and the Planetarium & Dome Theater, weekends at the museum include a number of other science-focused activities!
Take a journey through time as we explore a story that’s taken millions of years to unfold! Where did life begin? How did the first four-footed land animals emerge? Why do fossil whales have feet? Participants examine the museum’s fossil whales and related species, as they learn about the evolutionary processes responsible for the diversity of life on earth. After a brief presentation, visitors can make a cast of a tooth from an ancient whale species called Dorudon and help to construct an evolutionary timeline.
Join us in the Science Forum at 11:00 A.M. for a 15-20 minute demonstration. Appropriate for ages 5 and above.
