The University of Alaska Museum of the North, 1962 Yukon Drive, is exploring stars during November.

Families are invited to drop in with children 5 and younger at Early Explorers from 10 a.m. to noon on Fridays. Children 6 and older are invited to Junior Curators from 2-4 p.m. Nov. 9. These programs are included with admission and are free for members.

At Family Day: Stars, from noon to 4 p.m. Nov. 23, visitors can explore how different cultures view the sky, investigate how scientists study stars, make a solar viewer, create glow-in-the-dark artwork, and more. There is no admission fee for children 14 and under at Family Days, thanks to support from TOTE Maritime.
