  • Create your own eruptions at our hands-on exhibit featuring volcanoes of different eruptive intensity, volcanic rocks, and volcano research.
  • Attend an Earth science lecture on the latest research and discoveries at the Observatory.
  • Contribute to Lamont research by bringing soil samples from home to test for lead, and becoming an ice detective with X-SNOW.
  • Tour the Core Repository to learn about one of the world’s most unique and important collections of sediment cores from every major ocean and sea.
  • And much more.

The Open House is free and open to the public, with a $5 suggested donation.
