E3 Children's Museum & Science Center, A Division of the City of Farmington's Parks, Recreation & Cultural Affairs

Looking for Labor Day fun?

E3 is closed for Labor Day weekend, but here are a couple other fun things to do this long weekend in Farmington:

Dinosaurs of New Mexico exhibit

Last chance to see the Bisti Beast at the Dinosaurs of New Mexico exhibit at the Farmington Museum! New Mexico has become a world-renowned place for dinosaur discoveries. Fossils found in the state have helped scientists learn how dinosaurs lived, how they evolved, and how they went extinct. Since opening in 1986, the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science has become the number one place to view dinosaurs from New Mexico. Now their collection will be on display at the Farmington Museum through September 8. The exhibit is free and open Monday – Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (505) 599-1174 www.fmtn.org/FarmingtonMuseum

The Beach at Lake Farmington

This is the last weekend the Beach at Lake Farmington will be open this year, so spend your Labor Day in the sun! For info on the Beach and Lake Farmington visit  www.fmtn.org/LakeFarmington.

Atomic Teen Science Cafe. Where teens and science make the future. @AtomicTeenCafe

September 7 · 6:00 - 8:00 pm · Farmington Regional Airport

Teens 13 to 17, join us for “live” Atomic Teen Science Cafes. Cafes provide teens interested in current science the opportunity to interact with scientists in a fun and informal setting. Come for amazing science, food (dinner is provided), and fun!

This month we will be visiting the Farmington Regional Airport with Gary Mauldin, San Juan County Sheriff and Civic Air Patrol pilot as he teaches us the science of flying and a bit about law enforcement and search and rescue.

If you need a ride from the southwest side of town, a shuttle will take you from Sycamore Park Community Center to the Farmington Museum and back! Shuttle leaves at 5:30.
