October Halloween Experience

The MOD is tricking out one of our rooms as a special treat this October! Keep your eyes open when you visit the MOD for this spooky Halloween-themed room take-over. We are working with Season's Smiles and our visitors to set the stage for a little hocus pocus.


Patrons will experience a Halloween inspired sensory photo backdrop, a community art project -- "Moonlight Mosaic" -- Halloween dioramas with family-friendly jokes, and silly/spooky lights and projection.


It's the MOD's new and inclusive approach to haunted houses. Stay tuned for more!

Science Saturdays in the museum are free with admission and will take place on September 17 and October 15, 2022 between 11:30 am - 1 pm and 2 - 3:30 pm


They are designed to facilitate female working scientists from Driscoll’s Berries, Ohalo Genetics, and UCSC.

MOD's new STEAM programming will feature fun and educational programming like strawberry DNA extraction, a Mix-it-Up project, as well as having guests explore micro-organism viewing with our extensive collection of microscopes for a deeper discovery.

Join us for this exciting new program!
