Hands filled with colored slime

Totally Gross

Visit The Strong for a day of Totally Gross play! Enjoy an up close and personal display of the slipperiest and stinkiest animals of the museum’s live collections. Test your sense of touch and see if you can figure out what slimy, gooey, and squishy items are hiding in our mystery boxes. Get moving with Bug Yoga at noon and 2 p.m. and start a totally gross experiment with slime circuits starting at 12:30 p.m. in the Play Lab! Don’t forget to let it rip in the Whoopie Cushion Blast Zone and make a stinky stinkbug headband!

All activities take place in the Adams Atrium unless noted otherwise!
