The Children's Museum

Bring your group to this museum for fun, hands-on science and nature programs. By engaging learners’ imaginations and investigative skills, the museum’s field trips are a great way to introduce them to weather, animals, botany, and more. Dissect flowers and examine soil while learning about natural processes, play with electricity and magnetism, and discover the shapes and designs that go into building bridges. Book a Meet the Animals program at the nature sanctuary to meet groundhogs, frogs, lizards, and other animals up close while learning about their unique life cycles, adaptations, and habitats.
