Youth Programs

Youth Workshop Series

Youth 10+ can explore a variety of making and art subjects in these two-hour workshops for youth ages 10 and up.  Get an in-depth look into a topic you like, or learn something brand new!

Workshops are $5 each and advanced registration is required. Museum admission is NOT required to attend a workshop.  Participants can be dropped off and picked up by a parent or guardian in the Museum lobby.

Check the Calendar of Events for workshops in January, February and March.

Museum Lab™ Is Coming!

We're building a new museum with all new exhibits and programs for older kids, plus a three-story climber built inside the frame of the former library stacks.  Opening April 2019.  Find out more here.

Summer Camps

We offer a variety of summer camps that allow participants to dive deeper into some of our favorite exhibit features and practices. Our five-day long camps focus on art, making, exploration, and nature.


In this year-round program, high school teens help with community events, work with visitors in the Museum and participate in job readiness workshops that help them learn valuable academic, job and life skills.

Participation in the VolunTEEN Program is highly regarded when considering applicants for paid Youth Employment through Youth Programs at the Museum. Email Volunteer Coordinator JuWanda Thurmond at for more information.
