FAMILY FUN IN THE SUN: Museum Adventures in the Courtyard

Saturday, July 31, 2021 at 10:00am to 4:00pm

Museum of Natural and Cultural History
1680 E 15th Avenue, Eugene, OR

Join us in our native plant courtyard for family-friendly activities that will spark your child's curiosity about our past, present, and future. In July, you'll pounce like a saber tooth cat, move like a mammoth, and flap like a prehistoric monster bird! Get moving as you discover how these and other ancient animals ran, swam, leaped, climbed, and ate their way through Oregon’s past. Explore fossils, bones, and teeth while comparing ancient animals to those living in Oregon today.


FAMILY FUN IN THE SUN is perfect for families with children ages three and up. 

Activities are included with regular admission; free for MNCH members and UO ID card holders. Show your Oregon Trail or other EBT card for an admission discount.

Our new hours and timed ticketing system ensure a safe and enjoyable visit for every guest. Reservations are available. Request your reservations online or contact us at 541-346-3024 or
