Arrange a Family Night

Family with the Cat in the Hat
Students and their families enjoy a private event at the Museums.

Celebrate learning, achievement, and school spirit with your students during a fun Family Night at the Springfield Museums! Family Nights are special private evening events that can be arranged by schools, youth groups, and other youth-based organizations.

These events often feature a special exhibition at the Springfield Science Museum. Families are invited to participate in craft activities, planetarium shows, live reptile demonstrations, visits with costume characters, museum exploration, scavenger hunts, gallery games, door prizes and much more!

For more information or to schedule a Family Night, please email or call 413-314-6431.
