Children’s tours are fully led by a docent and typically last about one hour.

Many children’s groups enjoy the museum’s scavenger hunt on the first floor of the museum in the Science and Industry room and the Victorian Village.

There are several “touchable” items in the Science and Industry room children enjoy investigating.

Antique mechanical music demonstrations are also popular with our younger crowd.

Children enjoy the Russian Baths room on our second floor and like to learn the history of the museum’s early days as the Alcazar Hotel with the world’s largest indoor swimming pool.
