Adventures in Nature Winter Day Camp!

The Art of Science
January 5–9, 2015

This winter, NHM invites your child to join us for Adventures in Nature Winter Day Camp. Winter camp is held at the Page Museum and offers kids K through 4 the chance to mix the sciences with the arts! Unlike any other camp, we give a hands-on, behind-the-scenes experience, as well as a creative outlet to all participants. It’s so much adventure, your child’s camp memories will surely last a lifetime.  

Registration for Camp begins Monday, October 27!

Ice Age Encounters

Have an Ice Age Encounter when a snarling, prowling Saber-toothed Cat makes a special appearance at the Page Museum. This jaw-dropping adult Smilodon fatalis will take you back to a time when big cats roamed the land we now call Los Angeles. Bring your camera. You won’t believe your eyes! Learn more about Ice Age Encounters programs here and the amazing team that makes it all possible here.
 

Fridays at 10:30 am, 11:15 am, and 12 pm
Saturdays and Sundays at 11:30 am, 1:30 pm, and 2:30 pm.

Tickets: $3 per person.  Children 2 and under FREE, members FREE. Please buy tickets in advance. Seating is limited.
