workshop banner - grey bkgd with bugs - trimmedJoin us as the Animal History Museum leads free family workshops filled with crafts and fun! Kids of all ages can participate in a hands-on activity that sparks their imaginations while also reflecting and reinforcing the core values of Skirball’s adjacent Noah’s Ark exhibit, such as the importance of second chances, doing good for your community, protecting the Earth and its inhabitants (or in our case, at least its cats!) as well as inspiring children toward charity. Workshops are STEM school curriculum friendly.  Parents will also get resources so you can continue the learning experience at home.
