Programming Available for Scout Groups
A great day for Scouts to visit is each month’s Second Saturday, because of the extra learning opportunities available to all visitors. These special activity days feature crafts, games, hands-on opportunities and performances revolving around a selected theme-of-the-month. Some months may involve activities on all three floors of the museum, others may involve activities based solely in the Education Center.
Check our Calendar for upcoming themes.
Cost: all activities FREE with Museum admission.
Length: activities from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Self Guided Visits
Groups that prefer to experience the museum on their own may register in advance for a self-guided visit. After a brief introduction to the museum, participating groups have time to explore the galleries, visit any special exhibits and view live performances on the daily schedule. Specific performances or time periods may be requested for one live performance.
Cost: $6 per student/$6.50 with lunch room rental
Length: we recommend approximately 2 hours for a self-guided visit.
Group Size: Minimum of 15/Maximum of 300
Led by a professional museum educator, children participate in a hands-on session in the museum classroom, embark on gallery explorations and watch a live performance (choice of performances is based on the program, actor availability and the age of the children).
Cost: $7 per student/$7.50 with lunch room rental
Length: 2 hours/2.5 hours with time for lunch
Group Size: Minimum of 15/Maximum of 70-130 students, depending on the program.
