For over a decade the Museum has pioneered challenging, relevant, and interactive programming for all ages and levels of ability. Our School Tours utilize and augment state and federal science standards. The program consists of docent-led discussions and activities and one optional self-led activity. During the tour students discuss a wide range of locally relevant natural history topics with their guide. Tours can be customized by request.
