April 15
Noon—4 p.m.

What better way to celebrate Easter weekend, welcome the new season of chirping birds and hatching chicks—and learn more about where the eggs you’ll be busy dying and searching for come from—than at Carnegie Museum of Natural History (CMNH)?

The youngest explorers will follow clever clues hidden throughout the Oakland museum as they hunt for Easter treats and everybody’s favorite oval-shaped jackpot.

Kids will also meet live springtime animals, including bunnies and chicks. The super-sized fun will showcase science-based, thematic experiments, demonstrations, hands-on activities, and discussions with museum experts.

Arrive on time, because the first 500 children will receive special scavenger hunt maps and prizes.

The Egg-cellent Egg Hunt is part of the CMNH’s ongoing Super Science Saturday series, which explores rotating topics in-depth—from dinosaurs to DNA. Upcoming events include The Power of Poison on May 27 and Jurassic Day on June 17.

The event is free with museum admission and is designed for children ages 3 to 10.
