Pop-up Programs

Explore the museum in a new way! During this monthly pop-up series, dig deeper into Kidspace exhibits and special programs. Activity will run 10:30am - 4:30pm.


March 3 & 4 - Poppy Paper

Make your own handmade paper embedded with seeds and flowers.  Take it home or give it as a gift that can be planted and watered to make beautiful native flowers and attract pollinators.


April Weekends, 7-8, 14-15, 21-22, & 28-29 - Build a Chrysalis Carrier

Learn about how to care for your living caterpillar! Make your very own Chrysalis Carrier to keep your butterfly safe until it is ready to be released into nature! These carriers will provide a temporary habitat after your caterpillar transforms into a chrysalis, then watch as it emerges as an adult butterfly. Witness the magic from this great viewing station! Bring your own shoe-sized box, and Kidspace will provide the rest!




May 12 & 13 - Mud City

It’s muddy May! Celebrate the occasion by helping us construct a mud city using clay, dirt, and other natural materials. Your city planning skills are needed to build this squishy city!
