Discovery Classes

Discovery Classes

Hands-on learning comes to life at the Museum! With 12 different Discovery Classes, it’s easy to find subjects that enrich your students and the class work you’re already doing.

Our education staff is happy to customize any program to fit the needs of your class or school. Integrate a 60-minute Adventure Tour into your trip, or we can bring the Museum to your school! View the 2018-2019 School Programs guide or print a copy.
