Solstice Celebrations

Join us as the seasons change with a celebration for adults and families. Solstice celebrations feature food, music, activities, and booths from community organizations. 

Coming this Winter:

Friday, December 14 | 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. 

Ring in wintertime with some really big fun! At this year's winter solstice celebration, you and your family can journey deep into Oregon's Pleistocene past, meeting giant sloths, mammoths, and other impressive beasts along the way. Enjoy live performances, crafts, face painting, science activities, and more—and shop for unique, locally-made holiday gifts at the museum store. Purchase or renew a family museum membership—a great gift!—at 20 percent off during the event.


Included with general admission. Admission is free with a non-perishable food donation (per person) to FOOD for Lane County.
