Got Cabin Fever?

Spring Fever has now turned into Cabin Fever. McWane is preparing at-home experiments and activities for your family to enjoy these next few weeks until we can welcome you back to the museum.

We implemented additional steps in our cleaning protocols when awareness of COVID-19 heightened, and we will continue to follow these as we clean and sanitize our facility even during the public closure. We are also taking care of our animals, and creating educational content for our community which we will share here, across our social platforms, and email.

We would love to hear and see what you are doing to keep busy. Email us at and tag us on Instagram and Facebook.
