Spring Break Packed With Activities

If you’re staying close to home next week over spring break, or even if your school district is in session, we have loads of programs and events to keep kids busy and having fun!


A child adds her newly decorated egg to our “nest” during the 2011 Access for Everyone Spring Fund Drive.

Saturday, March 31, kicks off our Access for Everyone Spring Fund Drive. Stop into the museum to buy and decorate a paper egg for $1, $5, or “name your price.” All funds go toward ensuring that the museum is accessible to all in our community despite financial, physical, or other limitations. It’s a great chance to teach kids about philanthropy and for them to show off their art skills, since all the eggs will be displayed in the Community Concourse throughout the week. 

The drive runs through April 7, and if you can’t make it to the museum, you can also make a donation at any Roman Candle Pizzeria location, too. Thank you to The Roman Candle for being our promotional partner for this year’s drive. Thank you to the Spring Fund Drive’s lead sponsor, American Family Insurance, which will match up to $5,000 in gifts. We also thank supporting sponsors The Great Dane Pub & Brewing Co. Inc., and WEA Trust.

We ARE open the next two Mondays, April 2 and 9, to serve those on vacation. Why not kick off next week at Healthy Habits Week? This event, which runs through April 6, will help your family start spring with good health in mind! Activities that celebrate active play, healthy food choices, and smart safety will be held all week long. We have some farm animals visiting from Heartland Farm Sanctuary, CPR demonstrations, a “Zilly” Book Bonanza featuring author Kelly Parks Snider, and more!

Admission is free on Twilight Wednesday, from 5-8 p.m. April 4, too, so if it fits into your schedule, don’t miss this evening opportunity to visit at no cost! Twilight Wednesdays are held on the first Wednesday of each month, always from 5-8 p.m and with free admission.

Healthy Habits Week is presented by Dean & St. Mary’s. For a full list of programs, visit our Education Programs page and view complete program descriptions on our Calendar page.

Also, we will be closed on Easter, April 8. Have a wonderful spring break!
