School/Family Nights

School Nights at the Family Museum

Invite everyone from your school to come to the Family Museum for an evening of hands-on learning fun - at the discounted group rate of $4! You can also reserve an eating space in the Great Hall for your group! This is a great idea for a PTA/PTO sponsored family event. To register, email Julie or call (563) 344-4170. Please have a date in mind plus an estimate of how many people will attend. Our standard 1:6 chaperone to child ratio will apply. If you want to use ThinkShop, a 1:3 ratio will apply.

Family Nights at Your School

Available Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday evenings, September through May. Our educator brings all the supplies for a two-hour fun and fabulous festival (perfect for a special evening for your families) and you just provide the volunteers to facilitate the activities.
