"A Very Merry Museum"

Celebrate the holidays on December 17th from 10am-5pm with LASM's 4th Annual A Very Merry Museum event, sponsored by Baton Rouge Coca-Cola Bottling Company. We will offer hands-on activities, present holiday-themed shows in the Irene W. Pennington Planetarium, and offer photos with Santa in the Bert S. Turner Family Atrium while his Coca-Cola truck makes an appearance outside the museum from 1:30pm until 4pm. The festive day will feature engaging activities, including hands-on ornament making, Sneaux to Geaux science experiments (sponsored by BASF), and a museum-wide scavenger hunt. The first 100 children to arrive will recieve stuffed Coca-Cola Polar Bears donated by Baton Rouge Coca-Cola Bottling Company, the event's sponsor.

All planetarium shows and activities, including photos with Santa from 1:30pm-4:00pm, are included in general admission.

The Irene W. Pennington Planetarium will also offer holiday-themed shows, including Let It Snow and The Star of Bethlehem. Let It Snow features a wide variety of holiday classics accompanied by adorable animation and festive fulldome scenery, while The Star of Bethlehem takes visitors back 2,000 years to investigate the scientific and astronomical explanation for the "Star" that guided the Wise Men.

Visitors are incouraged to bring a non-perishable item for the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank and are welcome to stop by the LASM Museum Store for last-minute holiday gifts and stocking stuffers.
