The museum's annual Lecture Series is a highly anticipated event. Starting January 17, 2021 through April on Sundays at 3:00pm, museum guests can enjoy a different lecturer each weekend speaking on a variety of intriguing topics. Admission to each lecture is included with regular museum admission or $5/person if you do not wish to tour the museum before or after the lecture. Lecture series admission is free to museum members.
