While the Museum building is closed to the public to support the health and safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers we invite you to virtually visit some of our exhibits.
We hope you will join us to see these spaces in person once we reopen and resume normal operations.
This program is recommended for adult audiences, but may be enjoyed by younger audiences with adult supervision.
