WHAM and Mad Science have teamed up to bring you a spectacular science show this March Break!

This interactive performance features 'wow' inspiring demonstrations and engaging experiments guaranteed to put a smile on your child's face. In fact, your kids will be having so much fun they won't even realize they’re learning! After the performance, families are invited to wander the galleries and think about the science behind many of the wonderful inventions and artifacts on display.

Admission is $2 per child.
All ages welcome!

This month we’re trying something a little different at the museum!

As part of our "May is Museum Month" activities, WHAM and the Norfolk County Public Library have partnered together to bring you a spectacular museum-themed Storytime Program for pre-school aged kids (children over 2 and their caregivers). There will be stories, crafts, and maybe even a scavenger hunt!

We encourage kids and caregivers to spend time viewing the exhibits in the museum after the program.

This is a free program.
