December 2: World Wildlife Conservation Day. Learn how to keep wildlife safe in Florida and around the world as you play a match-up game, do elephant and giraffe crafts, and learn how to be a citizen scientist with the ‘Christmas Bird Count’!

Members' Nights

Explore the IMAG after dark! Monthly Members’ Nights invite you into the museum after hours to enjoy the museum with a little extra: special themed science activities, meet-and-greets with our Animal Ambassadors, and light refreshments.  It’s just one of many ways we appreciate our members. These events run from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

*Due to the nature of our prepared activities, registration is required to attend Members’ Night. Registration is always free. 

**These events start promptly at 6:00 PM. In order to give staff time to set up activities & refreshments, guests will not be able to enter early. Thank you for understanding!
