About

Farm Friends Day, our signature Celebration Day during Peace & Friendship Month, helps illuminate for children and families the important relationships between people, the land, and animals. At Portland Children’s Museum, we know that children are born with curiosity and empathy, and early on, they display an interest in the natural world and its creatures. During Farm Friends Day, we connect to these innate qualities while educating our visitors about good stewardship of the land, where their food comes from, and how animals should be treated. As always, we use a multi-faceted educational approach that employs hands-on activities, special guests, and stories to reach all kinds of learners.
