Family Education Series

The Family Education Series is an ongoing series of monthly educational programs. These programs are always free with admission!

Our goal for the family education series is to provide unique and interesting learning opportunities for our guests throughout the year.

These programs often vary from month to month, both in subject and presentation approach. Sometimes we look to enhance one of our exhibits with a program, especially a temporary exhibit. We write and produce original pieces of Museum Theater, using theatrical techniques to entertain and instruct at the same time. Sometimes we look at the calendar and pick a subject based on an historic event or holiday. No matter what we do, these programs are built for the entire family to enjoy!
