The Nature Museum at Grafton

The Nature Museum has been connecting youth to nature since 1989. Students can crawl through an underground bear den, dig for fossils, and learn about bats, bees, catamounts, and animal adaptations. Outside, they can see butterflies and honeybees in the wildlife garden. In the Village Park, students can hike through a forest of different trees. The Nature Museum’s programs are educational and designed to get students outdoors whenever possible. Options include single, multi-session, and customized programs. Choose from topics such as amphibians, astronomy, bats, beavers, dinosaurs, insects, owls, and many more. The Museum also hosts quarterly programming for homeschoolers.
