Museum Schoolhouse

We offer weekday classes for families with elementary and middle school students. These classes foster curiosity in the world around us and the use of science as a tool for exploring that world. Our experienced educators use the Museum’s 84-acres of indoor and outdoor learning environments as a platform for inquiry-based and project-oriented activities.
