Best Days of The Bakken!

Inspiring a passion for science since 1975!




The Best Days of The Bakken is a celebration of everything awesome at the museum! 

Bring your family and enjoy 5 glorious days of free admission from July 21 through July 25, loads of special programming and fun for the whole family. Throughout the Best Days, The Bakken will show off its best programs (science theater, creative take-aways, innovative workshops, and more), while also partnering with community businesses and organizations for activities and treats.

Each day has a different theme, and with each theme, all kinds of different activities!
