Girl Scout Programs

We welcome Daisy and Brownie Troops to tour the interactive play space at the World Awareness Children’s Museum.  Each tour is led by a Museum educator and includes an art project or specific lesson with free play in the exhibit areas following the program.  Your troop will enjoy hands-on learning with objects and children’s art from the Museum’s collections.
