Family Programming

Did you know that THEMUSEUM invites special guests, showcases local performers or hosts children’s events? We have a lot to offer at different times of the year, so be sure to stay tuned for upcoming events and special programming.

DINOSAURS | The Age of Big Weird Feathered Things 

Saturday, April 10, 10am – 4pm

Come one, come all for the grand opening of THEMUSEUM’s Dinosaurs | The Age of Big Weird Feathered Things and SONICA Exhibitions! Discover Dinosaurs in our dino-mite Saturday programming, a Guide to Dinosaurs Fact or Fiction with Nicholas Carter from the Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum. After you’ve learned all about dinosaurs, join us for an afternoon craft where you can make a paper dinosaur puppet with Riley from The Underground Studio Makerspace!

SONICA | The Sound Experience Family Opening 

Sunday, April 11, 10am – 4pm

Our SONICA exhibition takes center stage on Sunday with a feature performance by Mary Abdel-Malek Neil and members of the Grounded Theory Collective. They will present a set of songs that were created in the community with residents of the Region of Waterloo, including four songs that offer a sneak preview to the exhibit The Sounds of the Region. Come share in the stories and let the music move you! In the afternoon, join percussionist Richard Burrows for a Found Sound workshop teaching you all about percussion and rhythm using objects found around your house.
