Sign up to join the tour 
The Science History Institute, a Samvera community participant located two blocks from the conference hotel, would love to welcome you for a behind-the-scenes look with our collections and programs staff. Find out how our museum brings the histories of science to the public. Get a guided look at our library and rare books, our extensive digital archives, and how we use technology to enhance the visitor experience in our museum through oral history listening stations, an interactive touch table and media column, and displays of historic education videos.

Jonathan Rochkind will lead a group to walk from the hotel lobby to the institute at 4:15pm (sharp) on Wednesday, October 25th. You can also meet the group at the Institute (315 Chestnut) at 4:30pm. If you need to drive to the tour, contact Jonathan at least a day in advance at jrochkind@sciencehistory.org to reserve parking.
