Join us for International Science Museum Day!

Posted by EiE Team on Tuesday, November 10, 2020

November 10th is International Science Museum Day! With more than 300 million guests visiting science museums each year, this day is a reminder of the universality of science and its capacity to build bridges across geographical, cultural, and religious boundaries, all while addressing common concerns, according to the Science Center World Summit.

This annual, worldwide event celebrates the wide reach and lasting impact that science centers and science museums offer their communities. Science centers and museums worldwide use this day to promote their missions through diverse, informal science education and activities addressing the topics articulated in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were adopted by the world’s nations in late 2015. We’re thrilled to celebrate with you this year! 

In addition to all of the incredible in-person and virtual exhibits and events we have to offer at the Museum of Science Boston, we’re also excited to showcase these national and international science museums for you to explore!
