Family Fun

The Museum is the perfect place for a family outing featuring interactive exhibits, play areas and animals galore!

Pony Rides

Put your child in the saddle and let ‘em ride! This incomparable experience allows children to get close to a large animal and pretend to be a cowpoke. They’ll learn how to sit on a saddle as they hold on to the horn atop their favorite pony. Pony rides are $5 per child and are available Saturdays from 10:30 am to 12pm if weather permits.

The Adventure Corral

The Museum’s unique play room is a favorite stop for young visitors. They can climb into the hay loft, pretend to plant crops, ride a tractor or just sit quietly and read a book. This room is sometimes closed for special events when other children’s activities are offered.

Children's Interactives

Throughout the Museum’s galleries, many exhibits provide children the opportunity to explore, play games and get hands-on with various objects. Interactive stations include corn grinding, Spanish colonial trade, and pretend cow milking.

Discovery Garden and the South 20 Playground

Featuring a sandbox, swing set, picnic tables and wagons, the Discovery Garden will entertain your child for hours. Relax under the portal as they dig, swing and slide.

The South 20 playground, situated just across the bridge, features a wagon shaped play set and bouncy horses.
