ATTENTION MODS MEMBERS & GUESTS

Thank you for your interest in MODS! The Museum’s daily visiting hours are temporarily suspended. We are now offering virtual and offsite programming, which allows us to continue connecting people around the globe to inspiring science - whether at home or in virtual classrooms. We look forward to reopening our doors when case numbers are down, visitor and staff safety can be ensured, and when a viable vaccine becomes available, shoring up public health. Please take advantage of our online experiences.

For Museum updates and innovative virtual experiences, please continue to check our website and sign up for our newsletter to see the coolest content first! Hang with us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube to learn something exciting and fun each and every day from home!

Thank you for your understanding, trust and support during these exceptional times.
