Do you enjoy the dark?  Are you ready to go on an adventure, with nothing but your good senses and a flashlight?  If so, then you just might be the junior explorers we are looking for at this FAMILY FUN NIGHT at the Museum.  Peer through the darkness and discover walls lined with animal pelts of the past, see several deer species nose to nose, and if you can bear it, just around that corner may be 10 foot Polar bear just waiting to meet you.  Leap into the Museum is an educational program and family fun night with hands-on experience, all sorts of adventure, and lots of fun.  It is geared for boys and girls aged 5-12 years old, and their parents.  Yes, parents, you are invited to join the fun too.

  • flashlight tour of the Mann Wildlife Learning Museum,
  • scavenger hunts,
  • live animal presentations,
  • discovery stations,
  • craft time, and
  • everyone leaves with a take-home, keepsake goody bag.
