Summer Fun: Play Date at NMNH with Prehistoric Sea Creatures

100 Days of Summer Day 79


Join us at the National Museum of Natural History on Tuesdays for special family play dates with museum educators!

Tuesday, August 16 is all about prehistoric creatures of the Cretaceous ocean!  Families can learn about and make close observations of select pieces from our specimen collection, measure themselves in relation to a mosasaur (a very large marine reptile!), and create your own Cretaceous ocean mural. Come and join us for a fun time learning through play and exploration all about these prehistoric sea creatures.

The event is part of our drop-in program, Play Date at NMNH. Play Date at NMNH is a program designed for early learners and their caregivers and families. Activities are designed with early learners in mind, but all ages are welcome.

Location: This program is held in Q?rius, The Coralyn W. Whitney Science Education Center, on the Ground Floor of the museum. Please enter through the Constitution Avenue entrance. Q?rius is located on the right as you enter the museum.
