3 Fun things to do this weekend

Posted: Updated:

1) Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona. During the day explore the Observatory's history and current research by joining guided tours. Join us in the evenings for telescope viewing, widescreen multimedia shows, and tours of the Universe with our 3D space theatre – all while enjoying the clear mountain air and dark skies over Flagstaff. View through a variety of telescopes including Percival Lowell's 24" Alvan Clark refractor and experience interactive live presentations with our mini-planetarium. Open every day 10 am to 4 pm and Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm.
2) Peanuts at Bat: The Life and Art of Charles M. Schulz presented by Arizona Museum For Youth opened this weekend.  Charles M. Schulz entertained audiences from around the world with his Peanuts comic strip. With his endearing Peanuts characters, Schulz explored a broad range of emotions, from friendship and faith to tolerance and disappointment. Peanuts at Bat: The Life and Art of Charles M. Schulz celebrates the cartoonist's extraordinary life and describes his creative process and artistic focus. Open Saturday 10 am to 4 pm, Sunday 12 pm to 4 pm and Tuesday – Friday 10 am to 4 pm.
3) The Children’s Museum of Phoenix offers great summer options for kids. Not your typical Museum, here we want you to touch everything! We want to engage the minds, muscles and imaginations of children and the grown-ups who care about them. With hands-on, interactive exhibits designed for children ages birth to 10, the Museum focuses on learning through play, with emphasis on early childhood education and school-readiness.  Open Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday- Friday 9 am – 4 pm.
