Explore! Children's Museum, with support from DCCAH and local artists, provides art, music and science activities to our community. This has included dance workshops, science demos and a variety of arts and humanities.

Designed for students in grades 3-6, the Mission Mobile seats 5-17 students per 75-minute mission. While navigating through the human body, diving deep under the sea, or embarking on a rescue mission in space, your students will utilize up to forty 21st-century skills including problem-solving, collaboration, and critical-thinking!

Sounds of the Solar System was launched in 2019 to add to our arts-offerings. In just under 20 minutes, children will create an original music composition while learning about our planetary neighbors
