Saturday Investigation Station Activities

Most Saturdays during exhibit seasons, Gateway hosts a drop-in activity in the Investigation Station. Beginning March 2, 2019, Saturday activities will take place from noon to 2:00pm. Visit our Calendar of Events for upcoming activities. All activities are included with museum admission and are subject to change.

Museum Without Walls

Gateway Science Museum hosts Museum Without Walls, also known as MWOW, on Wednesday evenings in April and October. This series began in the fall of 2003, long before Gateway Science Museum was completed in 2010, which is how the series got its name. The series presents lectures with topics related to one or more of the exhibits currently on display at Gateway. MWOW lectures are open to all ages. For details about MWOW, click here or check the calendar of events above.

Herbarium Workshops

The Chico State Herbarium continues to offer workshops for the general public and the professional alike. Visit their webpage for a complete list of upcoming programs.
