We are excited to announce the next step in our mission to inspire lifelong learning among children and their caregivers by providing experiential learning programs covering STEAM, health, nature, and the environment. You may have heard that due to the sale of the property on Trout Brook, we have relocated our museum operations. To continue to serve our community, we will be moving our Museum and our Preschool to a temporary location while we continue to develop plans for a new permanent site.
In our temporary home, we will focus on supporting our family audience with engaging hands-on exhibits geared towards children ages 2 to 8 years old.
Membership extensions were processed for all members who were active in August 2022. Memberships were extended for three months.
