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.

Curious Kids’ Museum

Students will explore, experiment and remember areas of Science, History, Culture, and technology because of our Hands-on Remember Approach. We have over 100 exhibits and activities that include: The Volcano, Simple Machines, What If I Couldn’t Walk/Talk/See/Hear?, Construction Junction featuring Imagination Playground, Vet Clinic, Floaters and Fliers, Ambulance, Fire Truck and more! NEW Exhibits: Super Speedway, Sandbox, remodeled Farmer’s Market, Magnet Wall and some fun I Spy murals! Have you heard our musical stairs yet?

Your visit to Curious Kids’ Museum includes 1 ½ hours of hands-on learning & fun, split into two 45-minute segments where your group will spend 45-minutes on each of our two levels. A brief orientation is included.

Visits include a one-hour hands-on tour with a brief orientation. .
