Family Fun in the Sun

Saturday, August 27, 2022 at 10:00am to 5:00pm

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

Join us in our native plant courtyard for family-friendly hands-on bilingual English-Spanish activities that will spark your child's curiosity about our past, present, and future. On Fridays and Saturdays in August, 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 admission and free for MNCH members and UO ID card holders. Show your Oregon Trail or other EBT card for an admission discount.
