Gifts made between 7:00 a.m. and 3:59 p.m.

You will be the first to visit MPM when we reopen and go behind the scenes of MPM with the only person who has access to all of it! President & CEO Dr. Ellen Censky will be your guide to explore “staff-only” areas, plus you'll learn about the Museum’s research and collections firsthand. Hint: Be sure to ask Dr. Censky about her many adventures, such as her run-in with a jaguar.
