On Saturday November 14, the museum will host it’s first event geared towards children. The Planetarium will be transformed into a winter wonderland as Disney’s “Polar Express” is projected for three showings during the day. Attendees will be treated to cookies, hot chocolate, ornament crafting, and a scavenger hunt. This event will coincide with a pajama drive benefiting River Edge Behavioral Health families.
