Celebrate the season of love and science of the heart!


What's not to LOVE about hearts? Our workshops are the perfect way to celebrate Valentine's Day. Decorate heart-shaped cookies, paint a ceramic valentine for your sweetie or show love for your heart by discovering the science of how it works. Nothing beats our We Heart Workshops, so sign up today!

Tickets start at just $10 per member, $20 per non-member, and include Museum admission unless otherwise noted.

Majolica Ceramic Valentines


Learn the Italian Renaissance glazing technique, majolica, which allows the artist to paint detailed designs and text on ceramics. Choose between a Valentine's Day plate or heart-shaped box and get creative! Ages 5+.

Keep an eye out for more details on a very special workshop facilitated by artist-in-residence, Kia Neill, on March 15!

It's Electric


Fall in love with the science of circuits using playdough! We will use our squishy circuits and a cool piece of technology called a Makey Makey to play a digital piano and more. Age 5+.

We Got the Beat

We've got the beat - a heartbeat, that is! Discover more about this amazing organ in a science workshop with our (9-ft-tall!) ambassador for health. We will play games and conduct experiments to see just how fast our blood pumps, and make delicious “plasma parfaits” with pudding and fruit. Yum!  Ages 5+.
