FREE Family Events
Gateway to Science hosts several FREE family events each year. These events are typically “open house” – come when you can and stay as long as you like. We recommend allowing approximately one hour to complete all planned activities. Some events may include scheduled presentations, which we will announce in promotional information in advance of the event.
All FREE Family Events are held at Gateway to Science, 1810 Schafer Street, Bismarck, unless otherwise noted.
Free Family Events are held outside of the Gateway to Science Gallery. Special event admission to the gallery will be $4.00 per person. Members are always free.
Please check our Events Calendar for details about our 2017 FREE Family Events.
