Join us for our bi-monthly free Senior Morning Lecture Series! This special educational program began more than 30 years ago at our predecessor museum, Lakeview Museum of Arts & Sciences.
Each Senior Morning Lecture features coffee, light treats and a 30-60 minute presentation on a current exhibition, Dome Planetarium show, educational Giant Screen Theater film or a special topic. Following the presentation, seniors are invited to see the corresponding exhibition, planetarium show or educational film. Following the presentation, seniors are invited to see, free of charge, the corresponding exhibition, planetarium show or educational film featured in the presentation.
The Senior Morning Lecture Series takes place on the second Wednesday of every OTHER month and is free for seniors 60 and older.
