Families can now create and explore together during our new monthly program, Imagitarium Saturday. Look for it on the 4th Saturday of each month.
The Imagination Playground will be open from 10-11:15 am for children of all ages to build, stack, and design using the giant blue foam blocks. A full dome planetarium show will begin at 11:30 am and will feature a different title each month.
Lynn Zeleski, Education Assistant and Volunteer Coordinator, said the new program will give families a great opportunity to play together.
“They can let their imaginations run wild,” she said. “It’s a safe, fun environment where kids can burn off some energy and explore.”
The blocks used in the Imagination Playground are incredibly light, so even small children can lift many of the larger blocks. “Their eyes light up when they realize that,” she said. “They love finding new ways to connect them too.”
The Imagination Playground is free to the public. The Planetarium show is free for members and costs regular Museum admission for non-members. Walk-ins are welcome, and there is no preregistration required for this program.
