The Museum of Life and Science in Durham is opening a new exhibit this weekend called "Race: Are We So Different?"

A creation of the American Anthropological Association and the Science Museum of Minnesota, the award-winning exhibit tells the story of race from the biological, cultural and historical points of view. According to the description, it "brings together the everyday experience of living with race, its history as an idea, the role of science in that history, and the findings of contemporary science that are challenging its foundations. Combining these perspectives offers an unprecedented look at race and racism in the United States."

The interactive exhibit also aims to draw in even younger visitors. The exhibit opens Saturday and runs through Jan. 22 at the Museum of Life and Science. Click here to read more about it.

I have five packs of four tickets to give away! The tickets also include admission into the Museum of Life and Science, which includes the butterfly house, Dinosaur Trail, animal exhibits and much more!
