The Bell Museum’s snazzy new building and grounds are open and ready for the public. The iconic dioramas from the old museum have traveled to their new home, and are all cleaned up and gorgeous. New things in store include a giant beaver and wooly mammoth, as well as a brand-new planetarium, which will definitely become a must-see attraction. Continuing the Bell’s legacy of scientific research mixed with interactive exhibits and art, the new space offers many things to see, learn, and explore, fusing knowledge and beauty with curiosity and community engagement. Things kick off on Friday night with an opening gala, followed by expanded hours for the rest of the weekend.
