Welcome to MPM’s DataBlitz!

The DataBlitz is an event where you, the museum visitor, get to help us by transcribing scientific data from our collections. Like MPM's BioBlitzes, we want to see how many natural history specimen records can be transcribed in a single day. Unlike the BioBlitz, however, where the public comes to see scientists in action, we are inviting you to do the action!

This event will take place on Saturday, October 22, 2016 from 11:00am-3:00pm.

Black Friday

Join our educators for fun family programming on the First Floor. Festivities include making a holiday craft, interacting with docents, and glimpsing rarely seen holiday artifacts from the Streets era.
