From Nevada Today:
A priceless silver collection, a meteorite from outer space, a collection of insects, animals and plants from around the Great Basin and the world, medical artifacts, and hands-on activities and giveaways will greet families and visitors to the 12 museums featured in the University of Nevada, Reno's Day at the Museum event.
The community oriented event on Saturday, May 2 also features a tree treasure-hunt and crafts. The self-guided tour can begin at any of the dozen museums scattered around the campus, which is a designated arboretum and recognized by Tree Campus USA with collections of trees and shrubs.
The event, which runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., is geared towards school children and their parents, and includes free admission to most of the venues and a map/flyer of all the museums.
Each museum will feature a different hands-on activity and giveaway. The Day at the Museum is ideal for families and anyone interested in art, history, earth science, life science and even outer space. Parking is free on campus for this event.
