Learn and Play! You and your child are invited to join us for stories and fun including crafts, songs, games, and museum exploration. Each month, we present a different theme and a different set of hands-on activities.
Admission is $5 per family (up to 2 adults and 2 children). Admission is free for MNCH members. Each participating family gets 10 percent off museum store purchases (15 percent off for museum members). The store carries a variety of fun and educational gifts – including the Little Wonders book lineup!
Upcoming Little Wonders:
Is That My Shadow?
Groundhogs are little animals that live in holes, where they stay safe from harsh weather and predators. In late winter they venture out, but they can be scared by their shadows and retreat back to their den. This month, we'll learn about groundhogs, shadows, and the special day that celebrates them!
Have you ever wondered what lies beneath the deep blue sea? Come learn about the amazing - and sometimes odd - animals and plants living in the ocean, and create your very own sea creature to take home!
Do you have a favorite piece of clothing you love to wear? What do you wear when it's cold outside? What do you wear when it's hot? Come to the museum to learn about how we use and wear clothing in different types of weather.
