Free Family Night and Insect Hotel Opening

September 19, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

Whole Museum

On the first open Wednesday night of each month, MCM invites our entire community to enjoy the museum for free. Free Family Night is a great time for first-time visitors to enjoy the museum and is a popular time for older children to return to visit their favorite exhibits.

This month, Free family Night moves to September 19 due to our fall maintenance schedule. This night’s theme is Entomology Exploration!

Featured activities:

  • Insect Hotel Grand Opening: the museum’s newest exhibit opens on the Rooftop: 5:30 p.m.
  • Insect Art, Art Studio: 6–7:30 p.m.
  • Learn About Insects, Rooftop: 6–7:30 p.m.

Insect Hotel exhibit and programming are sponsored by


with additional support from Dane County Environmental Council.

Free Family Night is an Access for Everyone program. The developmental benefits of play are critical to every child’s growth and the museum’s access programs ensure that all children and families are equipped with critical resources to succeed.
