Visit with FCMoD’s very own live black-footed ferrets, the most endangered mammal in North America!
Join us in the Natural Areas Exhibit to learn about the conservation work being done to return black-footed ferrets to the wild, from the national captive breeding program to new advances in cloning. Meet the different ferrets that live at FCMoD, and watch as our furry friends tear into their weekend meal. Who knows, you just might become BFFs with our BFFs!
Museum admission is not required to attend this program, but the capacity is limited and first-come, first-served. Masks are required at this time.
Need a COVID booster? First dose? Flu shot?
FCMoD will host the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s (CDPHE) mobile vaccination bus to give the community an easy opportunity to schedule their vaccines.
Please note the mobile vaccination clinic recommendations:
Due to storage and handling constraints, we are only able to offer limited quantities of vaccines each day on each mobile unit. If you have a preference to receive a certain vaccine or are between the ages of 5-17, we highly recommend reserving an appointment slot in advance of your visit. Walk up doses will be available on a case by case basis.
Advance reservations can be made online by following this link.
For those receiving a second or booster COVID vaccination, it is required that you bring your COVID vaccination card to the event. Insurance and photo ID are not required.
Anyone visiting the mobile vaccination bus will receive a voucher for one family to visit the museum for free! The voucher can be used same-day or at a later date. Kids and adults can also participate in craft activities set up in the Learning Labs.

Dome Show: Dream to Fly
Since the beginning of history, people have dreamed of flying. Tales of mythical dragon flights thrilled ancient dreamers. Storytellers wove airy fantasies of magic carpet rides. Leonardo da Vinci stoked the dreams of flight with his fantastic drawings and through his eyes, we learned to look to nature for the secrets of flight. Dream To Fly is a poetic and touching story of aviation development through the ages. It presents the significant milestones on our route to conquering the skies – both in terms of technological breakthroughs, as well as our perceptions of flying itself.
