Time for science. MSI is open. Details

Although we cannot welcome you to the building for our Tuesday Tales program, the stories go on!

We've gone digital, with MSI staff members bringing you stories via video for you and your little ones to enjoy at home. Bookmark this page to get new tales of science and discovery every week, and be sure to join us back at the Museum for live storytelling when we reopen!
