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.
