NATURE AND SCIENCE AT WONDER WORKS: WHAT'S INSIDE? - 1-:00 AM to Noon - Wonder Works Children’s Museum presents "Nature and Science at Wonder Works: What's Inside?" at the museum, 6445 W. North Ave, Oak Park. Today we will use our senses of touch, hearing, and sight to discover what's inside a variety of natural and human made objects. Reach inside a box and let you sense of touch tell you what it holds. Shake a container to see if you can tell what's inside just by listening. We also look at X-rays of skeletons, break open pods and cut into fruits to find the seeds inside, and take apart toys to see if we can figure out how they work. There also will be magic tricks that you can figure out once you look below the surface. General admission is $7 per person, child or adult.

Inside her womb, her unborn sons contemplate their future, while the world around her is in transformation: her husband is secretly planning to leave her, her father is slipping into senility and her daughter has taken a vow of silence. Haunting and slyly funny, the lives of this family are explored in a lyrical treatise on the fragility of life and the power of love. Admission is free.
