“OTTERLY” OUTRAGEOUS FUN AT OTTERMANIA
Celebrate our favorite museum mammal
Celebrate everyone’s favorite museum mammal during OtterMania at the Calvert Marine Museum. On Tuesday, April 26 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., enjoy “otterly” outrageous activities, face painting, and fun.
Perfect for families with pre-school and elementary age children, this day invites kids to dance the “Swim” with our otter mascots, discover where otters live everywhere in the world, and learn what makes each species special. Learn what different otters eat by examining “stomach contents,” be a biologist and capture a photo of our otter in action, touch otter fur, discover why swimming outside all year is great for these water weasels and hear fascinating “tails” of otter adventures. Museum admission applies; free for CMM members. $2 donation requested for face painting.
The Museum Store is stocked full of “otter” merchandise including wearables, toys, puppets and more. Members save 10% in the Store every day and 20% off on the 20th of every month.
