Join us for EGG-stravaganza!

Join us for EGG-stravaganza, a exploration of egg science and art! Friday, April 7th during all three sessions we will be exploring and learning about eggs at our special drop-in program.

 

How does a whole baby chick fit inside that tiny little egg?  How can you tell the difference between a hardboiled egg and a raw egg without cracking into the shell? Visit our hands on science stations and see for yourself.  Find out how to dye an egg shell with colors that swirl!  Make an egg craft to take home.

Tickets are included in the price of admission; this program is an added experience that any Museum guest can drop into and out of during their time at the Great Lakes Children’s Museum.

Spring Break Astronaut Training at the Children’s Museum!

Calling all future astronauts!

Do you dream of one day walking on the surface of the Moon or setting off on an adventure to Mars? Do you think that working on the International Space Station would be exciting? Join us at the Great Lakes Children’s Museum during Spring Break for a week of Space Kids Astronaut Training. It just might be your “cup of tea”.  Speaking of tea: Find out how an astronaut would drink tea (or any other liquid) in space!

This is a FREE program included with tickets to any session (Morning, Noon, or Afternoon) happening during Spring Break Week (March 25, 28, 29, 30, 31, and April 1st). Just pick up your tickets on our Reservation Page to save your spot!

With fun, hands on activities you will do experiments, solve problems, explore space . . . . . . and even eat a snack like an astronaut!

Children will visit each astronaut training station and earn a sticker for each activity completed.
