BOSTON (CBS) – Looking for something to do this holiday weekend?  Here are some ideas around the state.


Museum of Science
1 Science Park
Boston, MA 02114

It’s your last chance to check out two “deadly” and thrilling exhibits at the Museum of Science.

“Reptiles: The Beautiful and The Deadly” is the largest traveling reptile exhibition where you can actually check out live deadly snakes, colorful lizards and bizarre turtles.

If engineering is more your thing, check out “K’NEX: Building Thrill Rides”, where you can explore the math and technology that goes into making thrill rides at amusement parks.

Reptiles will be at the Museum of Science through January 4 and K’NEX will be on display through January 17.


100 Northern Avenue
Boston, Mass. 02210

Some of Boston’s most talented artists are featured at the Institute of Contemporary Art in the Foster Prize biennial award show.

The exhibit displays the work of nine finalists ranging from large scale photographs of the Peruvian Amazon to experimental film.

The Foster Prize Exhibit will be at the I-C-A through January 17 with the winner announced in early January.   


American Repertory Theater
Loeb Drama Center
64 Brattle Street
Cambridge, MA 02138

It’s been called one of the most original and fascinating new piece of musical theater in years.  “The Blue Flower” is the story of the tangled love interests of three artists and a scientist from Paris in the early 20th century.

The show’s being put on by the American Repertory Theater and runs through January 8.  Show times are Tuesdays through Sundays at 7:30 pm with matinees on Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00 pm.
