What extraordinary learning is all about!

For more than 68 years, Museum School has been opening young minds to a world of natural wonder.  Museum School offers informal, discovery-based science and history classes that are enriched with Museum specimens or artifacts, creative activities, science investigations and other hands-on explorations. 

Summer Museum School will include a variety of classes for preschool and school-age children featuring natural science, physical science, space, dinosaurs, engineering, and other engaging topics. Children must be ages 3-9 by May 31, 2018 to be eligible for enrollment in their class level.
