September 28 Family and Group Overnight Adventure: Oceans
Did you know that about 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered by one thing, water! Dive into the science of the oceans from coastlines to marine life. Discover how diverse sand really is by viewing it under a microscope, sort your way through our collection of sea shells whilst uncovering the types of animals that used to live in them, before getting your hands wet in our touch habitat with real marine invertebrates while exploring our three-level Aquarium. Then plug your nose and get up close to one of our favorite invertebrates during a special squid dissection demonstration. In addition to exploring the museum after hours, admire the light of faraway stars in the night sky with our telescopes** and end your evening by unwinding with an exclusive show in the Frost Planetarium.
