Members Only Reopening Celebration
Saturday, May 15 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Join us for a special members only day with extended hours when we re-open after our closure for the NFL Draft! We will be kicking off the start of our Science Under the Sun programming that will go on throughout the summer as we return to being open seven days a week. May is Weather and Water Month sponsored by Moen and there is no better way to celebrate than participating in a Boat Regatta design challenge! Create a boat and race the clock down a water lane, making adjustments to better your time. There also will be a Moen water-testing lab as well as a station for giant bubble-making. Advanced tickets are required. Reserve your tickets here by logging in and selecting Members Only Activities or by emailing us at
