Special Events

Saturday, May 31, 2014, 01:00pm

ThinkTV and the Dayton Society of Natural History are coordinating curious events of all kinds! Classic shows that focus on early learning, science, exploration, and more are staples of ThinkTV programming. What better way to celebrate a new season of everyone's favorite inquisitive primate, Curious George, than with a special screening of Curious George Goes to Mars at the Boonshoft Museum's Planetarium, The Dome. Join ThinkTV and the Boonshoft Museum as guests watch the Man in the Yellow Hat swap his trademark accessory for an astronaut helmet so he and Curious George can "monkey around" the Solar System in the name of SCIENCE! Included with regular admission. Activities run all day with show times starting at 1:00 p.m.
