Small Group Programs

The Building for Kids will open in phases as it is deemed safe to do so by local public health experts.

We are currently offering small group programming!

We are currently offering small group programming in the museum! These facilitated programs are designed for a small group of households to participate in from distanced workstations. We’ll be offering various programs over the coming weeks. All visitors 3 and up are required to wear masks for indoor programming. Registration is required. 
We are dedicated to supporting student learning, so many of our classes meet WI Education Standards.  See below for more details.
