The Big Back Yard
Once again, the Science Museum of Minnesota is inviting its guests to enjoy the great outdoors with "The Big Back Yard." This year's exhibit will explore the delicate relationship between land and water. The nine-hole EarthScapes mini-golf course will examine what happens as landscapes erode into rivers and, eventually, make their way to the ocean. Guests can also wander through a prairie-plant maze or the Native American garden and learn a little about the greenery that grows and thrives in our state. Kids with sharp eyes can try their hand at being a '49er by visiting the giant sluice to pan for fossils and flecks of gold to take home. Want to just play golf as part of an early date night? Show up after 5 p.m. and pick up a special sticker pass at the front desk for only $5.
