Family Fun Fall Fest

October 9, 2021 - October 11, 2021

Fall is here! What better time to enjoy some quality family time playing and making memories together? Get ready for a jam-packed weekend of animal discovery and fall-themed fun to celebrate the changing of the seasons both indoors and outdoors at Explore & More.
  • Saturday, October 9th: Join us in celebrating autumn in the museum with various fall-themed activities including building your very own pumpkin launchers in the Tinkering Tank and decorating a pumpkin to take home in the Art Studio, as well as storytelling and sing-alongs.
  • Sunday, October 10th: We have so much planned – we added another day! The museum will be open from 10 am – 2:30 pm as the fall fun continues, plus Grassroots Gardens will be here from 11AM-1PM doing a fall potted plant activity with families.
  • Monday, October 11th: Not only is this our monthly Molina Monday where Molina Healthcare members pay only $5 for admission but Milk for Health will also be onsite, bringing with them some furry baby friends from the farm. We will have a special Dairy Station set up for the little ones to make pumpkin butter and other crafts.
