A mother and daughter ice skate at the Academy's holiday ice rink

Take a spin around our new holiday ice rink! Skating sessions are 55 minutes long, and tickets ($12/$10 members) include skate rental.

Please note: There will be no ice rink at the Academy this winter...we had to make room for our live reindeer!

'Tis the Season for Science is even cooler this year with an all-new outdoor ice rink!

  • All ages welcome; children under 12 must skate with an adult.
  • Ice rink tickets include skate rental; other accessories available for rent or purchase.
  • Ice rink tickets alone are not valid for general admission to the Academy and a separate general admission ticket or membership is required for entry.
