Museum of Life and Science marks National Watermelon Day with special event

Posted July 31, 2013

The bears, lemurs and other animals at the Museum of Life and Science will get a cool treat this Friday during Watermelon Day.

From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday, visitors can watch bears wrestle for whole melons in the pool or lemurs enjoying frozen melon pops. There also will be watermelon experiments and a special melon-themed menu at Sprouts Cafe. Friday happens to be National Watermelon Day. 

I'm told kids love watching the animals making an absolute mess. An added bonus: If you bring a whole watermelon for the animal keepers from Aug. 1 to Aug. 31, you will be entered to win a special behind the scenes bear experience for four. 

For more information and the full schedule, check the museum's website. Everything (except meals at Sprout) is free with admission, which is $14 for adults and $10 for kids ages 3 to 12.
