We love kids here at CESM! Our museum features hands-on exhibits and scavenger hunts to help guide youngsters through the museum (and get a sweet prize if you can find all the answers!). We offer fun programs for many different ages and interests. Find more information below or contact our Director of Education Services for specific questions.
