It's time to learn and play at The Journey Museum and Learning Center! With a broad range of educational topics and activities for kids, there's something new to experience every day of the week. We strive for life-long learning with programming that is meant to engage all ages and provide an environment to learn something new while having fun.

Whether it's Turtle Soup or Classroom Outreach in our traveling planetarium, We design all of our programs to actively engage our audiences and stimulate the desire to learn and understand more about the world around us, as well as above us. All of the educational activities for kids are thoroughly thought out and planned with a vision and plan in mind.

Take some time to discover and dust off bones in our Paleontology Tent or put your science, technology, engineering, art, and math skills to the test in our STEAM powered learning lab. Bring your daycare group, classroom, or your homeschool kids for a day of custom group programming. Our summer camps provide kids an opportunity to enhance their skills in the summer months while our adult programs like Learning Forums prove that learning has no age limit.

When you learn and play at The Journey Museum and Learning Center, you stimulate your mind in an environment that encourages life-long learning. Subjects stem from the initial museum collections of geology and paleontology, archaeology, Native American, and pioneer themes, as well as real-world events, art, and space sciences to create an eclectic and ever-changing set of programs and events.
