Julie's Journal - From the Director's Desk

Our Oct. 30 Spooky Science event was a wonderful success! We had over 200 visitors for our special activities including pumpkin bowling, bat activities, giveaways and more. The Candy Corn Contest winner guessed there were 500 pieces in the jar. The actual count was 556. Great job!

This month is our salute to Native American Heritage Month. We will have special planetarium shows highlighting stories from native Americans about the constellations in the night sky called "Sky Tellers." These will be shown Tuesday - Friday at 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., and on Saturdays at 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. In addition, we have several Native America exhibits for you to explore as well as arts & crafts activities throughout the month. Plus we have some new arrivals on our hands-on activities including the Marble Inclined Plane and the Weather Map.

We hope to see you soon. Mention this update when you visit to receive a free Detroit Children's Museum pin.
