Schedule Your Field Trip Before We Move!
If you want to bring one more class to UMMNH in the current location, schedule it before December 30, 2017! After 90 years in the Ruthven Museums Building, UMMNH will close at the end of this year, and reopen in our new location right next door in 2019.
From our Learn It! Do It! Days, discovery programs and planetarium programs, we offer many opportunities to extend classroom learning while still in this location.
While we are closed, you can bring Museum programs right into your classroom with our hands-on, inquiry-based workshops. (Available through December 14, 2018.)
Look forward to new science discovery experiences when the Museum reopens in 2019!
- Interactive, hands-on, and minds-on exhibits
- Innovative exhibits with new and favorite specimens and artifacts
- A new Digital Dome Theater explores a wide variety of science subjects
- Investigate labs for hands-on, public science
- And newly designed student programs both onsite and in your classroom!
