Halloween at the Discovery Science Center

by This is Carrie on October 15, 2013

There’s no better time to visit the Discovery Science Center than the month of October when you can “explore pumpkins, learn about the phases of the moon, explore a spooky 3-D maze, check out spiders of all sizes and colors, and much more” at the Spooky Science exhibit.

There is nothing more spooky than getting up close and personal with tarantulas and black widow spiders.

The kids can get their “craft on” making googly-eyed jack-o-lanterns.

On the weekends, the little goblins can make slime, participate in a costume parade, and see special stage shows like “The Wizard of Ooze.”

You definitely don’t want to miss the 3-D maze.  It really is amazing!

Spooky Science isn’t the only featured exhibit at The Discovery Science Center right now. The Science of Ripley’s Believe it or Not has come to the center and will be staying until January 5, 2014.  The kids have been obsessed with the Ripley’s believe it or Not books for a few years now and have been dying to go to one of their many museums. 

This exhibit is a great, kid-friendly taste of Ripley’s “compendium of oddities, anomalies and fantastic feats” as well as the science behind the unbelievable collection.  With it’s many hands-on elements, I haven’t ever been to a museum exhibit that could entertain all four of my children (ages 2-11) at their own levels for an extended amount of time.

Make friends with a Megalodon…..jaw casting.

Be stumped by the “mystery gate” (they eventually figured it out).

See how you measure up to he world’s tallest man.

You don’t want to miss these two great exhibits at the Discovery Science Center this October (both included in regular museum admission).  Find out more details HERE.

My children and I received a preview of The Discovery Science Center’s Spooky Science and The Science of Ripley’s Believe it or Not exhibits.  All opinions in the post are my own.
