I've been a member of The Little Nature Museum for close to 50 years, and have watched it grow and mature under Sandy Martin's guiding hand. When I first saw the Museum, it was located in Sandy's bedroom in her parents home in Massachusetts. She has moved it several times over the years and it is now in it's best home ever. The museum's collection has continued to grow as has its library and its schedule of classes and sponsored talks.
And speaking of the sponsored talks, I almost always find the topics interesting from "Ben Kilham on Bears" to "Vermiculture: The Wonderful World of Composting".
A visit to The Little Nature Museum is a great way to spend a day with your children - and you may even enjoy it yourself!
