A special presentation by the Rocky Mountain Raptor Program, The Owls of Harry Potter, is scheduled for Saturday, November 27, at 11 am.  Meet three living owls from the RMRP, just like owls used as messengers in the Harry Potter books and films.

Potter StarLab Planetarium Shows at 1 and 2 pm. Participants can make “Constellation Tubes” of their favorite

Harry Potter-related constellations. The Meet the Animals program featuring a snake, a toad and a rat will be at 12 pm.   From 11 am to 2 pm, the museum will also offer Wizardology lessons, featuring science experiments that resemble a Hogwart’s Spells Class!

On both days, the museum will serve warm Butterbeer to visitors from 11 am to 2pm.  Visitors will also be able to vote for their favorite HP book and character.
