Are your kids off from school on Monday? Not sure what to do to fill up the day? Bring them to the Science Museum of MN for a behind the scenes day. It’s a rare day when the Collections Vault will be open and activated by museum staff and volunteers giving the public access to objects not normally on display.
**It takes place from noon to 4 and is included with the regular museum admission.
