Attention Teachers!

Bring your class to Curious Kids' Museum or the Curious Kids’ Discovery Zone by Curious Kids’ Museum for both an educational and fun field trip! We're the place where learning is always fun! We have created a number of exhibits with you, the educator, in mind. Using any or all of our hands-on exhibits can help you meet your learning objectives in real world ways. Plus, the kids will have a great time! Your trip needs to be booked at least 2 weeks in advance, please.
