Children’s Ball: More Information

Hispanic Heritage Celebration

Saturday, October 11, 11am-1pm Learn about the important contributions that Hispanic Heroes have made to the fields of science, education, politics, arts and sports in America. Then, take your picture with your friends Dora and Diego and play Spanish Bingo. Create a Mexican cuff bracelet, a carnival mask, a coffee filter flower and make your own colorful maracas to play in the fiesta with Latin music and authentic Latin dancers. Activities are included with museum admission.

Creepy Crawler Monster Bash

Saturday, October 25, 1-3pm Snakes…and spiders…and bats…OH MY! Creepy crawler critters have invaded the museum and Dr. Shelly Counsel and the University of Memphis’ mad scientists are here to save the day. Come find out about the “roost” of a bat or investigate why werewolves hate salt. Join us for this non-scary monster bash celebration with fun ghostly experiments, spooky kooky crafts, candy stations, costume parades and more. Dress as your favorite non-scary costumed character and meet us here. All activities are included with museum admission.
