The Fairbanks Children’s Museum in March will be one of new activities and events, including a brand-new play! Here is a list of this month’s museum events:

March 25 – Super Saturday: Under The Sea

Dive under the sea this Saturday with UAF College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences. Meet new critters in the touch tank, make your own marine ornaments and try on diving gear! You won’t want to miss this!

March 18 to April 1 – She Sweeps The Stars (multiple times and dates):

“She Sweeps the Stars” is a play for children of all ages. It is the first production developed for and by museum staff and is free to attend for museum families. The show is directed by Abigail Van Patter and will be performed by UAF actors.

Follow the journey of Child as she travels up-up-up through the clouds, rain, and snow, meeting many fanciful characters in her search for a fallen star beyond the moon. With the use of puppets, music, interactive play and imagination “She Sweeps the Stars” turns the ordinary into the extraordinary.
