Every Tuesday in August!
Admission includes entry to Deep Sea Treasures, where families can discover the creatures that live in the deep and create their own light. Find a sunken ship using simulated sonar. Recover treasure with a robotic arm. Feel the contours of the mountains and valleys on the ocean floor.
Visit Delaware's only dinosaurs on permanent display, a life-sized model of a giant squid, a coral reef walkover, an African watering hole, and exotic mollusk and bird collections. Learn about paleontology in the Science in Action lab, and enjoy hands-on activities in the fully interactive Discovery Room. Explore the Nature Trail and Butterfly Garden with an outdoor eating area nearby to share a picnic lunch or cool off in the Museum's air-conditioned DuPont Auditorium to see a nature film.
