Ring in the New Year before bedtime! Our annual daytime New Year's Eve Celebration is a long-time family favorite and let's families ring in the New Year while the sun is still shining. We stage three "countdowns to midnight" that will make you feel like you're in Times Square. Noisemakers, party hats, photo booths and a glitter ball drop top off this fun day. The museum always closes early at 3pm today.
