"RACE: Are We So Different?," an exploration of the experience of living with race in America, opens at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History this weekend with several family-friendly activities that are free with museum admission.

At 11 a.m. Saturday, KDKA-TV reporter Lynne Hayes-Freeland and Nikkia Hall will discuss their recent experiences documenting community responses to questions about race and racism in a curators' talk in the Carnegie Lecture Hall. The project was patterned after "Pittsburghers Speak Up," which ran in the Pittsburgh Courier from the mid-1950s to 1977.

Art activities for families will be offered from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday and 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday. Museum educators will be available for discussion in the exhibit from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 12:30 to 4 p.m. Sunday.

The exhibition, which was developed by the American Anthropological Association in collaboration with the Science Museum of Minnesota, continues through Oct. 27. Museum hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday and Wednesday through Saturday; until 8 p.m. Thursday and noon-5 p.m. Sunday.

Admission, which includes Carnegie Museum of Art, is $17.95; seniors $14.95; students and children ages 3-18, $11.95; children under 3 and members, free; after 4 p.m Thursday adult/senior, $10; student/child, $5.
