|Date||October 5, 2019||Time||10:00 am - 3:00 pm|
|Location||Mayborn Museum Complex|
|Description||Join us as we commemorate the grand opening of the Mayborn Museum’s new Backyard Ecology Hall. |
Inspired by Central Texas stories, Baylor research, and natural phenomena, this exciting collection of hands-on experiences will encourage individual discovery and an appreciation for the natural world. The new gallery includes live animals that tell a story about local ecology and traditional museum collection objects while also providing ample creative play experiences for children and families. Visitors can compare their strength to a boa constrictor, learn about the Brazos River through an interactive water table, and experience life as a bee by climbing into a honeycomb.
We will be celebrating throughout the day with visits from real scientists and special hands-on activities. From 10:00 am – 1:00 pm help us plant our backyard! Step outside to the historic village to assist with our future bluebonnet garden.
Museum members are invited to a ribbon cutting at 9:15 am during member-only hour. Read More »
