The International Museum of Art & Science in McAllen will host a day of festivities, all focusing on our most precious resource, water.

On Sunday, March 28, from 1 to 5 p.m. the museum will offer “free” general admission to the public to learn about the marvelous ways in which water affects our daily lives, and the lives of plants and animals around us.

Demonstrations of wetlands, ocean bingo games, special storytimes, and water quality testing experiments are just a few of the activities prepared especially for this day. Visitors will be able to sit on a kayak, try on a life vest and guess whether an aluminum can left in the ocean disintegrates more slowly or more quickly than a plastic soda bottle left in the ocean.

The International Museum of Art & Science is also pleased to welcome Valley organizations such as Adopt-a-Beach, Sea Turtle Rescue Inc., Museums of Port Isabel, Edinburg World Birding Center, Texas General Land and Los Caminos del Rio, all of whom will help the amazing world of water come alive for you and your family. IMAS would also like to give thanks to the McAllen PUB their continued support in our efforts to educate our community about the valuable resource of water.

The museum is located at the intersection of Bicentennial Way and Nolana Ave. Monday: closed; Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday 1 to 5 p.m. The first Sunday of every month is “FREE” general admission to the public.
