What's Happening at the Bell

Celebrate Valentine's Day at the Bell Museum

Not only do we have the great outdoors, indoors, at the Bell Museum--we also have the Universe on display in our ExploraDome Theater! This makes the Bell Museum the perfect place for an intimate Valentine's Day picnic with your special someone or friends. We're turning the lights down for this evening event among the dioramas and giving you special access to our Eyes on the Universe exhibition.

The Bell Museum is well known for its internationally-renowned natural history dioramas. To learn more about their history and why dioramas will be a key part of the new Bell Museum facility, read our FAQs.

The Moose at Gunflint Lake has always been a beloved diorama. New additions give visitors the chance to discover how heavy antlers are, guess mystery objects and learn about current research on declining species numbers.
