For more than seventy-two years Museum School has introduced children to the wonders of the world around them. The program’s unique classroom surroundings foster a love for learning – from the wondrous science specimens and historical artifacts in the Museum’s large teaching collections, to the early-childhood master teachers who brilliantly connect children’s imaginations to nature in their own backyard, to times long ago and to the future. Young children are encouraged to discover and dream of one day becoming astronauts, engineers, historians, paleontologists, artists, inventors and so much more through their encounters with real objects and real stories.

Museum School prides itself on developmentally-appropriate, experiential, engaging learning environments. Everything that makes Museum School special are also the things that make it challenging, but not impossible, to modify its classes to meet the requirements of the current COVID-19 early-childhood environment.  While remaining dedicated to implementing up-to-date health and safety standards for the welfare of our staff and students, we are always reimagining new and exciting ways we can offer our extraordinary learning opportunities during this challenging time.

The Museum School learning legacy experienced by generations of children is continuing, and we hope your child can join us. If you have any questions, please send an email to registermuschool@fwmsh.org.
