Sea Monsters

Stunning photo-realistic imagery re-creates the perilous underwater realm of two young, dolphin-sized marine reptiles called Dolichorhynchops, or Dollies, and follows their incredible journey through waters ruled by some of the most awesome predators ever to prowl the Earth’s oceans. 40-minutes

2nd Annual Moon Festival

Celebrate the 46th anniversary of human’s first foot on the Moon with astronomy and rocketry activities that pay tribute to everything lunar. In 1969, astronaut Neil Armstrong took that famous “small step for a man, giant leap for mankind.” Long before that historic day the Moon enjoyed a colorful history throughout many cultures, with references found in poetry, writing, music, song, art and science.

On July 22, we will kick off the second year of our community festival with a Moon observation using powerful telescopes in front of the Museum.

Activities will continue on Saturday, July 23 with a rocket launch, poster display and hands-on activities for all ages. This year master storyteller, Susan Fowler, will present a participatory story for children which ties together the Moon and Indiana’s Bicentennial.
