Tips for Your Visit

Please Note: The Museum building is currently closed to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Children can go from incredibly active to absolutely starving in the blink of an eye,
so we offer nutritious meals and snacks at our Counter @ the Museum Café. Of course, you're also welcome to pack your own snacks and make use of the café tables to eat.

"Less" can actually mean "more." The Museum is big, so don't try to see it all in one day. Visiting just a couple exhibits—really digging in—can help children engage deeply, feeding their love of learning.

Follow your child’s lead. Observe the children you are with. What types of activities do they enjoy most? What captures their attention the longest? Use these observations to support their continued growth.

“Read it again!” Repetition, repetition, repetition. This kind of fascination helps build focus, a critical life skill.
