Where: OMSI 1945 SE Water Ave, Portland, OR 97214

No unattended children. This is a family event, not a drop-off event. A responsible adult must stay. We need the name of the student and the adult who is responsible for the child.

Come Explore, Learn + Play At The Museum

Time to get out of the classroom and into the museum for an evening of family learning fun! This exclusive event is designed to foster community between teachers, parents, and students. Family Science Nights at the Museum strengthen parent and family involvement in science exploration and discovery as well as offer a unique experience for families and teachers to visit the museum and spark a lifelong interest in science.
