You can start off your morning with a "Live Animal Story Time" at 9:30, drop-in to participate in the "Soaring Satellite Design Challenge," walk among the free-flying residents of the Butterfly Garden, a warm conservatory filled with exotic plants, and visit the Discovery Center where your little one can put an animal skeleton together, touch a real fossil, or observe a variety of live animals up close. Wrap up your day with a viewing of "Big Bird's Adventure: One World, One Sky" in the Charles Hayden Planetarium, when you can Explore the night sky with your favorite friends from Sesame Street and learn about the Big Dipper, the North Star, and more.
