Play Date at NMNH: Cambrian Critters

Join us on Tuesdays for special family play dates with museum educators!

Tuesday, April 25th is all about one of the most abundant animals of the Cambrian period…trilobites! During this Play Date at NMNH, families will be able to make observations of trilobite fossils, create their own trilobite model to take home, and learn about other extinct ocean life that roamed the ocean alongside the trilobites.

The event is part of our drop-in program, Play Date at NMNH. Play Date at NMNH is a program designed for early learners (ages 0-5) and their caregivers and families. Activities are designed with early learners in mind, but all ages are welcome.

Location: This program is held in the David H. Koch Hall of Fossils – Deep Time exhibit on the 1st floor of the museum.

Accessibility: Access services such as American Sign Language interpretation, real-time captioning (CART), or audio description are available with two-weeks advanced notice. To request this service, please call (202) 633-5238 or e-mail
