Spurlock Museum - General

This fall, we’re exploring connections between nature and culture with 4 month-long series of programs on water, trees, rocks and minerals, and ice and snow. We’ll look at the ways different cultures have used natural resources, explained natural phenomena, and found inspiration in the world around them. Examine artifacts, hear stories, and dig into sample materials. Experts from around town and campus will offer demonstrations and discussions. All programs are free and available on a drop-in schedule.

Each month has a distinct theme, with a series of programs for different ages and learning styles within those themes. The second Sunday of each month is our feature program of the month, Discovery Days, that will bring together a range of activities and experts for a more in-depth exploration of the month’s theme. The third Sunday of each month Artful Nature offers visitors an opportunity to create a unique project inspired by the natural world. All other Sundays are a Culture Lab with drop-in activities led by our museum guides. Join them for mini-tours, scavenger hunts, and touchable artifacts.
