Connections Member Events

Connections members are welcome to attend any events promoted in our newsletters and other general Museum events. Connections members are not eligible to attend events for our paid members, which include: Coffee with the Curator, STEM Starters and special Member previews.

Connections member events are currently on hold due to a staffing shortage. We hope to bring these events back soon.
