Educational Programs

Perfect for school, church, parent, home school, and community groups, children can explore our two floors of educational exhibits through self-guided field trips, or participate in educational workshops through our Learning Labs.  We offer several educational experiences throughout the school year, as well as outreach programming through our Museum on Wheels program.
