Event Description

Fourth Fridays are sponsored by the Los Alamos Creative District.

The Los Alamos Creative District is introducing Fourth Fridays, an initiative for local businesses to offer extended hours, special programming or discounts one Friday per month. The initiative is meant to encourage people to visit and enjoy the downtown area.

  Bradbury Science Museum is participating by staying open late offering access to exhibits and special activities for all ages from 4:00 to 6:00 PM. Admission is free and open to the public.

  • May 22 - Exploring the Solar System: Travel through space and experience gravity on other planets through a walking tour of our very own solar system.
  • June 26 - Working with Wind Power: Engineer and design wind generators or build and fly a miniature helicopter.
  • July 24 - Under the Microscope: Explore the natural world through the eyes of microscopes. Examine pond water, plants, fibers, pollen, and more.
