EverWonder Announces August Schedule



Text Size

EverWonder Children's Museum, at 31 Pecks Lane, has announced its calendar for August.

This month in the Yellow Art Lab, children can make paper spinners and learn how colors can change or "mix" when spun. The Blue Science Lab will be all about sundials. Children can create their own sundials and learn how to use a shadow to tell time.

Story Lab for Young Explorers will continue to meet each Tuesday from 10:30 to 11 am. This is a 30-minute program of STEM-themed stories, activities, and crafts. Parents must stay with their children during the program, which is free with museum admission.

Visit with Ranger Nate on Fridays, August 3, 17, and 31, from 10 am to 2 pm. A wildlife educator from Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo, Ranger Nate has animal furs, scat, and more exciting creature fun and information during each of this month's drop-in programs, which are included with museum admission.

The museum is looking for people to march with staff members on Monday, September 3, when they participate in Newtown's Labor Day Parade. For details, contact Merredith at mchristos@everwondermuseum.org.

Admission is $7 per person (free for those 12 months and under, museum members, and veterans). Parking at the museum is also free. The museum will be following its summer schedule, open Tuesday through Friday, 9 am to 4 pm; and Saturday and Sunday, 11 am to 5 pm.

EverWonder is a Blue Star Museum. Through Labor Day, all active duty and reserve military members and up to five of their family members receive free admission with their military ID.

The event calendar is subject to change without notice. Check everwondermuseum.org or the museum's Facebook page for calendar changes and announcements. For more information, visit the website or send e-mail to info@everwondermuseum.org.
