Founders Day

Pay what you wish to celebrate the anniversary of the Academy’s founding. Bring your friends and family to enjoy dinosaurs, butterflies, and more!

On March 21, you can see all of our signature exhibits, including our live butterflies, dinosaurs, dioramas, and our renovated children’s discovery center, Outside In. Stop in to the Café for lunch or a snack, and find some awesome dino swag in the Academy Shop.

Please note: Pay what you wish does not apply to field trips and group visits, including school groups.
