We take cleaning to new heights during our annual Fall Refresh. We're closed Tuesday, September 4 through Thursday, September 6, when it's all hands on deck - or roof - to clean, maintain, and improve this amazing facility we call home. Yep, It's time to give the exhibits a good once over, do some maintenance, and give the place a deep cleaning to bring back that new museum smell. While we clean every day, and super clean on Tuesdays, we need a few days each year to make sure everything is in great shape for our 200,000 annual guests.
