DAVENPORT, Iowa (Jan. 10, 2018) —  Expect family-friendly fun that makes a splash during the Putnam Museum & Science Center’s next Family Fun Night: Outstanding Oceans on Friday, Jan. 19, from 5 to 8:30 p.m.
Ever wonder what life is like on a coral reef? What creatures lie in the depths of the ocean floor? Families are invited to uncover the beings in the sea and how humans can make a positive impact on the ocean ecosystem with several activities in the Grand Lobby.
“With more than two-thirds of the planet’s surface made up of oceans, there is so much knowledge to uncover that doesn’t meet the eyes,” said Octavia Houtekier-Boyd, vice president of education with the Putnam. “The goal is for families to not only have fun during this event, but also learn something new!”
To continue in the deep-sea fun, stay for the viewing of “Humpback Whales 3D” at 6:30 p.m. Movie ticket purchase is required to view this film. Adult movie tickets are $8.50, and youth tickets (3-18) are $7.
All Family Fun Night activities in the Grand Lobby are free to the public. General admission is required to experience the museum and science center.
Family Fun Night is generously sponsored by IH Mississippi Valley Credit Union.
