Geocaching is your chance to be part global explorer, part detective! Search for treasure chests, called "geocaches," using a GPS receiver to uncover each chest's secret hiding spot. We've hidden them around the museum grounds and filled them with science prizes - can you find them all?

What happens to the world once the sun goes down? Let's marvel at the mysteries of night as we turn out the lights, tune in our senses, and step out into the dark. Search for constellations in a starry sky, meet one of the museum's nocturnal animals, and explore the museum grounds with a one-of-a-kind nighttime tour.
