Museum Discovery Quests

Mom and daughter check out quill pen artifact in the Becoming Clarksville exhibit. Mom points to artifact and daughter points to Museum Discovery Quest in her hands.

Museum Discovery Quests are self-guided pamphlets that offer a fun exploration through the Museum. Kids can experience exhibits and artifacts in new and entertaining ways that pique their curiosity and captivate their attention. The theme changes regularly. Bonus: Pick up a free Take It N’ Make It activity packet to create a fun project at home.
