Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?
Thursday, September 18, 12:30 p.m. and Friday, September 19, 6:00 p.m.
Gumshoes, we need your help! V.I.L.E. henchmen have been lurking around the CMA galleries. Check on the well-known landmarks in our collection before Carmen Sandiego has a chance to steal them!

Ancient Aliens
Thursday, October 16, 12:30 p.m. and Friday, October 17, 6:00 p.m. 
Did aliens really visit ancient cultures on Earth? Could the truth of mankind's origins and otherworldly interactions be found in the fabric, metal, and stones of our distant past? The TV show Ancient Aliens says yes; take a look at works in our collection and see if their evidence convinces you.

There and Back Again
Thursday, November 20, 12:30 p.m. and Friday, November 21, 6:00 p.m.
Venture out of your hobbit-hole for an adventure through the collections. We’ll visit dragons as fearsome as Smaug, hear tales of warriors like Beorn who transform into ferocious animals, and marvel at treasures worthy of the King under the Mountain!
