Self-Guided Explorations

Learning Through Exploration

The Children’s Museum offers Self-Guided Explorations for those who prefer unstructured learning opportunities. We believe that there is great value in learning through investigation and discovery. Our permanent galleries foster imagination, encourage creativity, and develop critical thinking skills through interactive exhibits and hands-on activities.

All Self-Guided Explorations must be booked in advance.
