Learn and play from home—museum style! Preschoolers and their adults can join us online for our popular Little Wonders program, featuring stories, hands-on activities, and more. This month, we're exploring tall trees, mini mushrooms, feathery ferns, and other plants that call the forest home.
Little Wonders activity kits: Need a little help gathering the materials for this month's Little Wonders? A limited supply of activity kits will be available for pick-up at the museum starting Thursday, May 20. Kits are $5 each; MNCH members are entitled to two free kits each month; discounted kits are available to Oregon Trail or other EBT card holders. Kits are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Pick up your kit Thursday through Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.* You can also have your kits mailed to you by completing our online request form.
*Open hours are subject to change. Before you pick up your kit at the museum, please call 541-346-3024 or check our Visit page for the most current information:
