Interacting with History

Thanks to the generosity of Randy Hart, children can enjoy a variety of permanent activity stations throughout the museum, each designed to give visitors an in-depth experience with local history. Dress up in historical costumes, use a quill and ink to create a Lewis and Clark-style journal, explore the furs and habitats of different local animal species, play with beautiful paper dolls, and more! These stations are available during regular visiting hours.
