Earth Day Celebration at The Children’s Museum

April 14, 2012

Looking for a great way to teach your kids about energy and conservation? Come to The Children’s Museum’s Earth Day Celebration on Sunday, April 22nd.  The day will feature an exclusive Monorail tour and energy preservation playtime.

Very few people have the opportunity to go into the Monorail’s maintenance facility and see the underside of the trains. Children and their caregivers will get to take a guided tour of the Monorail and see first-hand how the trains work.  Participants will also get to participate in a hands-on energy experiment inside the Museum.

Make sure you RSVP for this event as space is limited. The event is offered at 10:30am, 12:30pm, 2:30pm and 4:30pm.
