Go with the Glow Fun Day

Saturday, October 28 from 10 am – 2 pm
FREE for Members or with General Admission

Join us for Go with the Glow Fun Day to experience the Exhibits like never before – with things that GLOW! The Museum will have some areas of the Exhibits dimmed to allow the guests to experience glowing activities and participate in light experiments. Visit the Gallery Explainers as you travel through the Exhibits to collect a complete set of 6 Collectible Cards. These cards are only available at the Cook Museum. Available while supplies last. There will be a 10 am Stories in the Store, cool, hands-on activities in the classroom, and Halloween treat bags for children as they leave.

At 11 am, there will be a live underwater pumpkin carving by divers in the Oceans Tank.  If you miss the live demonstration or want to avoid the crowd, a video from a previous underwater pumpkin carving will play until 2 pm.

There will also be carved pumpkins in the live animal enclosures in the Discover Exhibit. The pumpkins provide extra enrichment activities and a special treat for the live animals. The carvings will be based on the winners’ designs from the Pumpkin Stencil Contest.

This is a unique event you and your family won’t want to miss!
