The museum’s extensive scout programs offer Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts many opportunities to play, learn and earn requirements, from a one hour tour or an afternoon hands-on workshop to a themed overnight!
See the Museum in a new light after hours while scouts participate in team challenges, sing in a virtual campfire celebration and enjoy a sleepover in the galleries!
