Children's Museum


This Children’s Museum Workshop has been rescheduled for Monday, August 11, 2014 at 1:30 pm. Hope to see you there!

A museum educator will lead participants in an upcycling adventure. We’ll learn about the human footprint, keeping the earth healthy, and play the “What is it now?” guessing game. Children can choose from several open-ended upcycling craft stations and make something to take home. For children ages 4-10. Call or come in to sign up!
