From our homes to yours, the new Living Room Lecture series brings some learning into happy hour: each Thursday evening, a Museum expert chats about their work from their own couch, over a drink. We encourage you to raise your own glass (of an age-appropriate beverage) with our lecturer as you learn more about their research. No prior knowledge or experience is required—everyone is welcome to enjoy these casual discussions.
Each week, the Living Room Lecture goes live on the Museum’s Facebook page at 5:30 pm,
with an opportunity to ask questions of our experts.
