Family and Homeschool Programs

Go Beyond the Exhibit and participate in one or more of the museum's unique family programs. Children and their grown-ups have the opportunity to get up close and personal by learning from experts, viewing items from our vast collection, and getting the inside story. The Children's Museum also offers engaging programs for homeschool families that relate to museum exhibits and state and national academic standards.

Classes may be cancelled due to low registration. All program participants must register. Program fees do not include nonmember museum admission.
