ABC at the Boonshoft | June 29th @ 7:00p

ABC is a night that brings friends together to discover the wonders of the Boonshoft. From curating 1.8 million objects to serving over 265,000 individuals yearly, the Boonshoft is a place where interactive STEM Education, immersive Natural History exhibits, and an outstanding AZA-Accredited Zoo connect. We create and provide meaningful and entertaining learning experiences for children and adults alike, and we invite you to be a part of this powerful mission. Come learn about why we are one of the region’s top destinations while sipping on exclusive and rare bourbons curated by our host and DSNH Board Chair, Jason Trimbach.

Beer, wine, and light hors d’oeuvres provided by our Eco Eatery will be available.

2024 STEM for All | Formerly Super Science Saturdays

June 12 | July 29 | November 2

The Boonshoft Museum is committed to providing the greater Dayton community with science-focused programming and fun for the entire family. Each year, the Museum will host four dates that will offer FREE admission from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. These special learning days include access to our Special Exhibitions, Space Theater Shows (limited seating available), and public programming.

In order to facilitate a full day of learning that is safe and enjoyable for all, parties or groups larger than 10 may NOT convene in the Food Chain or Eco Eatery. Tables cannot be reserved or moved, and absolutely no decorations are permitted. Personal food/snacks are permitted in the Food Chain and Eco Eatery; families attending the event with groups may not bring in shared meals/food.

Additionally, due to high levels of attendance at free events, the Boonshoft Museum cannot accommodate meet-up space of any kind on STEM for All Days. Please note that this includes group meet-ups in the Main Lobby,  Eco Eatery, and the Food Chain. All families must maintain a 6:1, child to adult ratio, and each child must be the express responsibility of at least one accompanying adult in attendance. Please note, this is not a group event, if you have a group of more than 10 or are interested in sponsoring a family night, contact 937.275.7431, ext. 136 to arrange for a private building rental. If your family group is more than 10, please call 937.275.7431 at least one week prior to the STEM for All you plan on attending so the Museum can be sure your accommodations can be met.
