Hands-on Happenings

Children at the museum
Hands-on Happenings


Our hands-on programs are designed for children ages 5-12 and their families. Hands-on activities highlight different parts of the Museum's permanent and temporary exhibits and collections. Participants will make arts and crafts to take home and see demonstrations or performances where noted. Annual favorites include Halloween Museum Mayhem, Chemistry Day and Festival of Health. ALL PROGRAMS ARE FREE.

Contact Anna Koenig at akoenig@kvcc.edu, or call (269) 373-7970 to find out how you can become a Museum volunteer. Volunteers are recruited throughout the year.   All volunteers are required to fill out a background check.
