Science Museum of Minnesota  The Upper Midwest's must-see, must-do museum, located in downtown Saint Paul, Minnesota.

https://www.smm.org/

On Saturday The Force is back for Star Wars Day. From noon to 4 p.m. launch stargliders, compete with wind powered pod racers, meet members of the @501stcentralgarrison, and more.

Creature Feature: Dwarf elephant skull. The myth of the Cyclops may have been fueled by fossil discoveries. Ancient Greeks who uncovered the skulls on Mediterranean islands may have mistaken the central nasal cavity β€” where the trunk was attached β€” for a single eye socket, that suggested one-eyed giants had once roamed the land. #MythicCreatures
