Workshops offer an exclusive family experience like no other, and our March/April workshops are sure to put the spring back in your step! Designed to offer a little something extra, our workshops provide extended fun and learning in our most popular exhibits. We cap them at just a few people, so it's really just for you!

Tickets start at just $10/member, $20/non-member, and include Museum admission unless otherwise noted.

Members get first dibs on workshop registration! Join today.

Please note: Adults must purchase their own ticket and accompany children at all times. Workshop ticket purchases are non-refundable, but are transferable to a friend. You must be a current Children's Museum member to receive member pricing on our workshops.
