Curator Club

It is Curator Club time again.

Don't know what that means? Children in third through fifth grades are invited to register for the Curator Club, a multifaceted science program at The Oakes Museum on Messiah College's Grantham campus.

There will be six Saturday sessions beginning June 13th where members will study topics including animal super senses, the Community Garden, wildlife art, alternative energy sources, wetlands, and the Yellow Breeches. You can go online for details.

Curator Club members receive an annual membership card for free admission to The Oakes Museum, a 10,000-square foot museum that features a collection of Smithsonian quality African and North American mammals, bird eggs, fish, seashells, minerals, insects, and fossils; as well as email updates on upcoming events and activities at The Oakes Museum and a newsletter about museum related science topics. Members who attend three or more activities will also receive a birthday certificate for three free children’s admissions and a Curator Club t-shirt.

The activities held are on Saturday mornings from 9:45 AM - 12:00 PM. The cost is $10 per activity or enroll in all six activities for $50.00 (a savings of 20%). Registration is now available online. If you need more information you can call Helena Cicero, Education Coordinator for The Oakes Museum of Natural History at Messiah College, or Beth Erikson, Curator Club Coordinator, at (717) 691-6082.
