Free Family Morning: April 8

To celebrate World Health Day and combat depression, the Washington County Museum invites the whole family to engage in physical activities and learn how exercise can reduce anxiety and improve mood. Students from the Health and Science School in Beaverton will host exciting demos and activities to help boost energy and morale. Experts have known that exercise enhances the action of endorphins, chemicals that circulate throughout the body. Endorphins improve natural immunity and reduce the perception of pain (Harvard Health, 2009).

Every second Saturday of the month, we bring families together for truly engaging and unique learning experiences. Please join us on Saturday morning, April 8 to activate the body and mind.
