The Children’s Museum offers an exciting series of Discovery Camps at various times throughout the year. These camps are a wonderful way to have some hands on fun while learning!

The kids enjoy dinner, activities, crafts and games at the Museum, supervised by our trained staff. Themes for this event change regularly and special activities are offered, too.

The hours are 6-9 on the third Friday of the month. Children must be between the ages of 3 and 12 and be potty trained. Cost is $20 for the first child and $15 for the second. Museum members enjoy a discount of $5 per child (card must be shown when children are dropped off).

Reservations must be made in advance by calling or stopping by the Museum. There is a limit of 15 children; make your reservations early!

The Children's Museum has a wonderful weekly program for preschool age children and their caregivers!

ToT Time begins at 10:00 each Tuesday morning and is free with the price of admission to the museum. If you have a membership, this is a totally free program for you and your child.

The class is held in our camp classroom and we ask parents to stay with their children to help us as we provide a wonderful learning experience for the preschoolers.

Please note: This program will only run while school is in session. When the schools are on break, ToT Time will take a break.
