2010 Summer Schedule :

Archaeology Adventures! June 21- 25

Let's Play! July 5-9
It's all fun and games this week! Explore games that kids played in the past, from hula hoops and hunt the shoe, to Connect Four and Clue. We'll play inside games, sports, and create our own Museum Olympics.

Pioneer Life July 12-16 Travel back in time to explore Florida's pioneer days through storytelling, games, and simple crafts. Find out what life was like for Florida pioneer families in the late 1800s.

Museum Mysteries July 26-30
