The Museum of Cultural and Natural History​ invites kids and their families and friends to explore the museum, make new friends, and have fun. Visit our new temporary exhibit by and about international students. This exhibit entitled, "What I Learned When I Was a Child: Stories from Around the World," features lessons that these students have learned. Come and meet some of the students. Share stories of what you have learned and if you like, add them to the exhibit. 

Other activities include a scavenger hunt to find animals in our main gallery. Use your adventure map and visit all five lakes at the "Great Lakes Adventure" exhibit in our children’s gallery. If weather permits, we will play Sea Lamprey Suck! Tag and learn how the sea lamprey became an invasive species in the Great Lakes.

Be sure to stop by the one-room schoolhouse to experience a school day in 1901. If weather permits, we will play some outside games. (Schoolhouse is located on the corner of Preston and W. Campus Drive.)

McDonalds will provide refreshments and a free happy meal for participating kids. It’s fun, it’s educational and kids get to experience all things cultural for Free!
