Mythic Creatures Members’ Opening
Friday, February 15, 5:30–9:00 p.m.
Free for members
Join us for the members-only preview of Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns and Mermaids. For thousands of years, people have brought mythic creatures to life through art, stories and songs. Even as scientific discoveries have drawn distinctions between myth and reality, these beasts of the land, air and water have maintained an enduring hold on the human imagination. Discover how real animals such as dinosaurs, mammoths and narwhals may have stirred tales of griffins, giants and unicorns. Learn why so many legendary water spirits look like mermaids. Touch fossils, explore winged mythological creatures, build your own dragon and come face to face with a giant legendary sea monster.
See our newest special exhibit first and for free while you enjoy light refreshments and special programming.
