ALL NEW Explore Even More!

Explore Even More is ALL NEW this year! This one-hour program from 9:30am – 10:30am on Wednesdays from October through May is designed for preschool-aged children and is limited to 20 children each week. The program begins in the Museum with an exploration of an exhibit followed by a circle time discussion. An activity that connects the play and circle time will round out the hour.  Caregivers may drop off their child for the hour or stay and play with us! Best of all, this program is FREE with your Explore & More membership or Museum admission for the month of October. Since each week is limited to 20 participants, pre-registration is required: you can register at the front desk, email ablake@exploreandmore.org, or call 655-5131 ext. 21 to register.
