A visit to Kearney Area Children’s Museum provides smart fun for classes or groups! Exhibits and programs engage children’s creativity with hands-on exploration, movement, teamwork, open-ended play, and problem-solving strategies. Museum exhibits complement classroom curriculum, and provide opportunities for interdisciplinary learning—blending art with science and environmental education with social studies. We’d love to be your field trip destination!
