Museum members contact us for advanced registration.

The egg hunt that “rocks” returns once again! Join us at Rice Museum on Saturday, March 31, 2018. Admission is $6 for everyone ages 5 and up, and includes admission to the museum galleries.

Your mission: locate 4 eggs of different colors around our property and redeem them for prizes. Our prize table includes 2000+ WHOLE thunder eggs and mystery bags of mineral goodies. We’ll have volunteers on site all day to cut your thunder eggs open for FREE so you can be the first to see the surprise inside.

Educational talks on thunder eggs in the Northwest will take place inside the museum at 11:00 AM, 1:00 PM, and 3:00 PM. Egg hunting is available all day.


Due to the overwhelming popularity of this event, we are requiring pre-purchased tickets to enter the museum grounds for this event. Members are admitted free, but must still reserve tickets. Since members get free admission and early registration opportunities, this is a good time to consider purchasing a membership.  Your membership supports our educational programming and comes with great benefits.


We are limiting the number of tickets sold and offering two opportunities to attend Thunder-Egg-Stravaganza: a morning and afternoon admission window.  If you purchase an AM ticket, you can get in through the front gate any time between 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM. If you purchase a PM ticket, you can get in through the front gate any time between 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM.  We have plenty of thunder eggs and will not run out.  The event will be the same all day long, regardless of whether you show up at 10:00 or 3:30.

This event is sold out!

  1. Where we supposed to receive tickets after purchase or just bring a receipt for proof of purchase? I bought the tickets but my husband is the one bringing the kids. Wanting to know what he needs for tomorrow.

    1. Hi Cindy, If your husband has the printed tickets, that’s our preferred way of tracking, but we have a backup list of who bought tickets because we know stuff happens! We’ll see your family soon!
