Play Date at NMNH: Investigating Insects

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

Tuesday, April 4 is all about insects! Families can make close observations of select pieces from our insect collection, learn about what makes an insect an insect, and create their own take-home craft to help them remember key physical traits of insects!

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 Kenneth E. Behring Family Hall of Mammals 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
