Children's Programs

Our children's programs are educational in nature, with a lot of fun thrown in! They are usually structured to include some instructional time, a craft or activity related to the topic, and home-made cookies to finish it off. We do annual programs in the spring, summer, and in December. We hope to increase our children's offerings in the near future, so keep an eye on this space!


Museum staff is available for guided tours and presentations. Tours can be tailored to fit your group's interests, but we require at least one month notice for this service.

If you are a teacher and would like to bring your class to the Museum, please contact us at least 2 weeks in advance. We may not be able to accommodate requests made on shorter notice. School tours are available Tuesday-Friday, 9am-4pm.
