The museum is closed tomorrow, Saturday March 7. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause. However, the museum will be preparing all day for its biggest party of the year, to be held that night – our annual Gala. This event helps fund the museum so that everyone can enjoy our exhibits, lectures, and science classes for the other 364 days a year.

This year’s gala is calledThe Wrecking Ball, because in addition to funding our standard educational programs and operations, proceeds will also go to support the Museum’s Capital Campaign – HMNS@100: Building For A Second Century of Science.  The funds raised will enable to museum to expand our education and exhibition spaces to accommodate both our swelling numbers of visitors and the community’s escalating interest in thought-provoking exhibitions and informative educational programs.

If you would like to hlp support the future of science education, please consider a donation to the museum – for more information, or to donate online, simply click here.
