Celebrating Franky-Stein!
Oct 27 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Victor Frankenstein and the “monster” he created first appeared 200 years ago in Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein.  Since Shelly published her novel, the Frankenstein characters have appeared in plays, movies, TV shows, comic books and many other places.  You may recognize Frankenstein’s creature as a Halloween costume, a classic Hollywood monster or the complex character in Shelley’s story.

Join the Children’s Museum as we celebrate Franky-Stein with lots of fun science activities!  Grab your ghouls and boys for a day of franky-fun! Activites will run from 10am-2pm. Kids are encouraged to wear their costumes. This event is  included with Museum admission and free for members.
