My family and I moved to the area a little over three years ago. We were told by locals that we should bring our children here for a fun family day. I am so thankful we listened! We feel in love and bought memberships. The homeschool classes are so wonderful! My children look for ward to every one and hey come away with so much information that was fun for them to learn. Thumbs up all the way!
Museums can be, well... stuffy. Nothing about this museum is stuffy. One of the best roles of a museum is engaging the visitor, and this museum excels at that. Learning in an informal, hands on mode is always best. It is fun, it is funky and visitors learn without even knowing. I have had the pleasure of watching this museum operate over the years and have been impressed by its operation and evolution. It is definitely an asset to our community.
MASM is absolutely one of our favorite places to visit. Both of my children (ages 5 and 12) love the exhibits and the classes. We bought a membership after they begged regularly to visit and participate in more classes. As a homeschooling parent, I appreciate how the museum has reached out and asked how they can help us better educate our children in science topics. Their classes are meaningful, well planned, and packed full of knowledge. I love how MASM encourages and excites children (and adults) of all ability levels and backgrounds. What a wonderful treasure Mid America Museum is!
I have a homeschooled 4th and 6th grader that love to attend the museum. Over the past 5 weeks, my kids have taken part in a homeschool lab focusing on aviation. They have met once a week for 5 weeks. They have learned so much about aviation and also built many test models. They have throughly enjoyed the instructor, subject matter and other children. Thank you Mid-America Science Museum for partnering with me in educating my children.
