QUARRY ROAD OUTDOOR ADVENTURES

Come for a walk in the woods

The museum meets at the Quarry Road yurt every Tuesday at 10:00 for an outdoor adventure!

Weekly meetups take place completely outside, are socially distanced, last about an hour, and include a walk through the trails and a simple activity.

This program is completely free and open to all ages.

Toddler Power Hour

At the Museum

Join us at the museum for Toddler Power Hour every Monday from 9-10 am for ages 1-4. This is a time of unstructured play for children to explore our Mobile Museum sets, toy sets, sensory toys, and more. Please note there will be minimal museum staffing and the area will be set up in a way to invite children to play rather than provide adult-led activities.

Supervision is required.
