At 42-feet-long and 12-feet high, SUE is an impressive sight to see!

June 18 – August 10: Summer Adventure Camps

MOSH will have a fun-filled program schedule for Pre-K through 6th graders.

October: Green Revolution
Green Revolution is an innovative eco-zibit from the Smithsonian. What makes this exhibit unique is that it does not arrive on gas-guzzling trucks.
