Muggle Magic combines the iconic world of Harry Potter with natural science.
On Saturday, the museum will transform into the IMNH School of Nature and Science. Join us November 19th from 11 am to 3 pm as we use the popularity of Harry Potter to get kids excited about Natural History and STEM. This year the event will coincide with the release of the newest Potterverse related film “Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them.”
“We are very excited to bring back Muggle Magic this year” says IMNH Education Specialist, Becky Hansis-O’Neill, “The overlap between real animals and the abilities of fantastical beasts allows us to spark young imaginations in a unique and effective way.”
The museum staff will be joined by Idaho Fish and Game, Zoo Idaho, Audubon Society, Idaho National Laboratory, the American Fisheries Society, National Wild Turkey Federation, and Idaho State University professor Dr. Chuck Peterson, and more to explore the fantastic beasts of Idaho and the West.
