The Museum of Life and Science in Durham is celebrating winter indoors with a host of special activities for the next few weeks through Jan. 19.
Frozen Over, as they're calling it, lets museum guests build giant felt snowmen; explore patterns of snowflakes; skate in their socks in an indoor synthetic ice rink; scurry through "igloos;" and take part in other fun activities without the hassle of donning big winter jackets, mittens and hats.
It's free with admission, which is $14 for adults and $10 for kids ages 3 to 12. The activities are offered from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday; and noon to 5 p.m., Sunday. It's also offered from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday, Dec. 29. (The museum is usually closed on Mondays in the winter).
