With so many schools in the Quad City Area, sometimes we get a little busy. Visit our Upcoming Groups Page to see how many kids are planning on coming and what time of day they will be attending.

Special Needs Kits Available

The Family Museum is pleased to offer visitors a special sensory kit to assist those who may need support with calming children with special needs. Upon request, our Guest Services staff will gladly provide you with a kit filled with such items as calming brushes, sensory toys, and tools to assist children with tension that they may endure while playing at the Museum. Also, the Museum's staff is happy to provide you with a quiet low-lit room when necessary to help your child.
