What's the buzz? Find out at our May Saturday with a Scientist!

Visit our educational Honey House and meet scientist Gary Reuter, who is a long-time beekeeper and keeper of the University of Minnesota bee research colonies.

Your family and friends will learn about honey bee biology, see a working hive, and even have the chance to extract your own honey. For a small fee, you can buy a jar from the museum store and take some Bell honey home! You can also meet graduate student Ian Lane, who is focusing on incorporating flowering plants into grass lawns to provide bee foraging areas in urban landscapes. 

Beekeeper demonstrations will take place at 11 a.m, Noon and 1 p.m. Be sure to sign-in at the Saturday with a Scientist lobby table to get the details on the day's activities before you explore the museum!
