The District offers a wide range of programming for all ages to enhance your experience and bring historical and scientific concepts to life. Check our Calendar for current program dates and times!

Summer Camps: Summer Camps at the Grout Museum District are a great way to fully engulf yourself in all things History and Science. Spend the week enjoying a wide range of activities all based around an historical or STEM related theme. Camps are available as a fun, exciting, and educational alternative to daycare.
