THIS PAST ACADEMIC YEAR...

...we had a wonderful year of educational hands-on science and art activities. Families were also able to meet experts from different fields and ask all kind of questions of paleontologists, ichthyologists and marine biologists, mountaineers, anthropologists, Alaska Native dancers, genomic specialists, and biologists.

Visit the museum's tumblr page to see some of those stories.
