The University of Alaska Museum of the North will hold a Family Day exploring film and photography on Saturday, March 4, from noon to 4 p.m. There will be examples of historical films on display, as well as a portrait gallery, scavenger hunt and other activities. There is no admission fee for children 14 and under at Family Days, thanks to support from TOTE Maritime.

The museum is also exploring film and photography at hands-on programs all month. Families are invited to drop in with children 5 and under at Early Explorers each Friday from 10 a.m.-noon. Junior Curators, for kids 6 and up, meets Saturday, March 11, from 2-4 p.m. A newer program, Teen Studio, on Saturday, March 25, offers an opportunity for young adults ages 13-18 to try light painting.
