Make spring break full of discovery!
Young plants sprouting in soil.

Activity packets featuring a variety of hands-on activities and explorations for families are available for purchase. Family packets contain materials for up to two children and may be used by larger families with simple at-home additions. Packets connect to museum collections (plants, birds, art, ethnology, etc) and all activities are spring-themed.


Choose between activity packet only or activity packet and family admission pass (discounted rate). The family admission pass is good for up to two adults and all children. Museum members can also select the packet and pass option. Since members get in free all year, the pass makes a great gift for friends!

Reservations are now closed. Check back soon for more information about upcoming events!
