Family Saturday

Blast into the Past

October 12, 2019 1:00 PM

Celebrate Washington’s role in the space race with these drop-in, family-friendly activities!

Build and test your own spacecraft. Pretend you’re stranded on the moon. Learn about Washington’s many strange connections to space exploration. Then explore the new exhibit A New Moon Rises, featuring dramatic photographs of the moon’s surface.

Family Saturdays are scheduled from 1:00-3:00 PM on the second Saturday of each month and feature hands-on activities inspired by local history. Activities are designed for children ages 4-12 but all ages are welcome!
