Ages 3 through 6 by September 1, 2018

For more than 68 years, Museum School has been opening young minds to a world of natural wonder. Founded in 1949, the program was first called the “Frisky and Blossom Club.” Today, Museum School continues to be a national model for informal science education. The engaging curriculum combines natural and physical science, history and anthropology with art, music and literature. The playful learning environments are supported by specimens and artifacts from the Museum's science and history teaching collections.

Each week, class topics and activities change or build on each other, taking children on an exciting journey of investigation and discovery. The richness of real objects, curatorial support and a dedicated staff ensure first-hand, developmentally-appropriate learning experiences that enrich children’s lives.
