Join us every last Wednesday of the month for our lecture series. Museum doors open at 6pm, and the talk starts at 7. Due to holiday conflicts, we do not typically hold lectures in November or December. Each month we offer humanities and science lectures, each featuring a different topic relevant to the museum's exhibits, cultural history, natural history or current events.
