Hands-on Weekends at the UM Natural History Museum

Each weekend, your kids will have the opportunity to get hands-on at the UM Natural History Museum (1109 Geddes Ave, Ann Arbor, MI 48109) on Saturdays at 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. and Sundays at 3:00 p.m (No Demos on April 4 or 5).  The current Hands-On Demo: Cow's Eye Dissection will help kids explore what makes our eyes work or how we see?

Kids will have the opportunity to dissect a cow’s eye to take a closer look at the organ that helps us see the world. How is it similar to and different from our eyes, and those of other animals? Learn the parts of the eye and how they work together to illuminate our sight. They will also talk about why some of us need glasses and how we can keep our eyes and our vision healthy.

There is something for everyone during this free interactive demonstration! Hands-on demonstrations are 20-30 minute interactive programs on the 2nd floor of the Museum.​ ​They include both brief presentations highlighting University research and engaging hands-on activities, and are suitable for adults and children ages 5 and up.
