The LeFleur Museum District (LMD) invites you to attend a special STEM-themed festival!
On Saturday, September 22nd, all four museums of the LMD (MDWFP’s Mississippi Museum of Natural Science, Mississippi Agriculture & Forestry Museum, Mississippi Children’s Museum, and the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame & Museum) will host a special day where experts and special guests from science-based industries across the state will provide hands-on experiences for children and families.
By bringing these experts together, MSF is able to show the range of career opportunities that exist while also sparking participants’ curiosity, excitement, and interest.
*Please note that museum memberships will not be applicable on this date, as the $10 admission grants entry to all four LeFleur Museum District Museums for the event (does not include food trucks and face painting).
A FREE shuttle bus will be available between all four museums.
Food vendors will be on-site, too.
