Countdown to Noon Contest

December 31 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EST
Countdown to Noon!

Our family-friendly New Year’s Eve event, Countdown to Noon, is going virtual this year!

Due to COVID restrictions, our Countdown celebration will be broadcast live on Facebook on New Year’s Eve. Families will still be able to virtually enjoy our popular science demos and learn all about our Museum animals, New Year’s traditions from around the world and have some New Year’s food fun.

We will continue the Balloon Drop tradition with a COVID-friendly twist!

The Balloon Drop will be broadcast live from the Museum for all our Museum friends to see. Through our online Countdown Contest, one lucky family will get the special privilege of being at the Balloon Drop in person and release all the balloons! Click below for details and to purchase your tickets for a chance to win.

A little something for the grown-ups.

For the grown-ups, we’re raffling off a four-course gourmet dinner for two prepared by the award-winning chefs at Gourmet Galley!

Tickets available soon.
