Field Trips and Workshops for Preschool – Grade 5

We’re in a class by ourselves!

More than just a physical space, the museum offers vital learning experiences that enable young people to discover, create, test, explore, observe, predict and make sense of the world around them.

Through our tours and workshops, young minds will experience interactive, fun-filled learning spring to life. Engaging museum exhibits, spaces and programs support our guiding concept that children learn through play.
