Daily Programming

Our Daily Programs are great way to extend learning! These programs are created by our highly skilled educators, who specialize in hands-on learning, and are included in admission and museum membership.  There is no additional cost.

Each month of programming has its own theme, so activities stay fresh and exciting!
