Interactive Neighborhood for Kids is a wonderful extension of the classroom. Our Museum's exhibits are designed to complement and enhance classroom learning by providing experimental, hands-on learning opportunities in a realistic setting. Educators are given the tools to: encourage hands-on, interactive play, to develop and build new skills, to be eager and curious about learning together. If your group has not been to our Museum – you’re missing a great lifelong learning opportunity! Reserve your trip today!
INK is happy to assist you with your visit. We will help to plan the best date and time for your group. A nonrefundable $50 deposit is required to reserve your trip, which will be applied to your total admissions for the day. Please plan your visit for at least two hours to complete the exhibit areas. Schedule in advance extra time for lunch and/or special activities. We can assist you in adding great activities, such as painting your own pottery or a special arts and craft session.
INK requests that one adult chaperone come for every six children to allow for appropriate supervision. If your agency cannot provide appropriate supervision please let us know in advance in order to make arrangements for additional staff to be on hand (for a small additional charge).
