Fun Events for Kids in April

Can you believe how quickly 2018 is flying by! Spring Break is over and before you know it, summer will be here! Below are some fun events to keep the kids entertained during the month of April.


Family Night at the Museum

Most months on the first Saturday, the South Florida Museum will stay open late for a fun filled evening of family fun. Each month has a different theme with hands-on activities which begin at 3pm and run until 7pm.

This month the activity is “Make it Count”.  Was 6 really afraid of 7? Should we be afraid of math? No way! For this Family Night, roll up your sleeves and have fun with numbers. Learn how math and measurement help people travel, build, and understand our world and beyond.

Museum admission is reduced during Family Nights after 3pm.
