We’re teaming up with the Cranbrook Art Museum for FREE Third Thursday! Every third Thursday of the month, visitors can receive free admission to Cranbrook Institute of Science from 5:00 – 8:00pm AND the Cranbrook Art Museum from 11:00am - 8:00pm, courtesy of the Community Foundation of Southeast Michigan. In honor of the Winter Solstice (Dec. 21), this month’s event will feature hands-on, winter-themed activities:
Why do the nights grow longer and the air becomes colder during winter? Experiment with globes, flashlights, and thermometers to understand the reasons for the seasons.
Find the light in the darkness through stargazing! Explore the stars behind the constellations, make a tracing, and learn about an unexpected Native American star story.
Craft a led-powered paper lantern to guide you on your journey for more Winter Solstice celebrations at the Cranbrook Art Museum!
