On February 22, all five of BYU’s museums collaborated to put on one of BYU’s most popular events: Night at the Museums! The Museum of Art, Museum of Paleontology, Museum of Peoples and Cultures, Education in Zion, and the Bean Museum became venues for food and activities for the night. Here are some of the things we had going on at the Bean Museum:
Guests chowed down on Cougar Tails (of the donut variety). Yum! Fun fact: Cougar Tails hold the title of No. 1 selling college specialty concession.
College students, kids, couples, and families alike, all loved posing with animal props at our photo booth.
We had two live animal shows in the auditorium. Visitors got to meet several live animals including a snake, a frog, and a tarantula.
Visitors had fun looking at the different exhibits and interacting with the Bean Team, our museum’s student educators. They especially loved the fur cart, where they could touch different animal furs, scales, and feathers.
Guests that attended all five of the museums could complete a scavenger hunt. The goal: solve a riddle that leads you to a hidden sticker at each museum. Guests who found all five stickers won a special Night at the Museums water bottle!
Thank you to everyone who attended Night at the Museums. We had tons of fun at this event! We hope to see you at BYU’s five fantastic museums next year! To learn more about upcoming events at the Bean Museum, visit our website https://mlbean.byu.edu/-Events.
