Free for Homeschoolers

At this Homeschool Day, we’ll celebrate the amazing lives of creatures who come out at night!

Learn about special adaptations that help animals see, move, and find food in the dark. Meet with live animals normally not seen during daylight, learn from museum scientists about some of our nighttime critters that inhabit L.A.'s skies, and get up close to the beautiful and elaborate webs being spun by residents of our Spider Pavilion

As always, these special days are free for Homeschoolers.
