Contact the museum's Education Director, 650-321-1004 for further information on any of MOAH's programs.
Docent-Led Group Tours:
Visit the Museum in the company of one of our trained docent staff. They will lead you through a detailed explanation of our rotating exhibits, permanent exhibits and our historic house and gardens in a relaxed, informal environment. Special tours can be arranged for groups with an interest in specific subjects. Groups of all ages, from school children to seniors, enjoy viewing and interacting with the many MOAH exhibits.
Suggested donation: $20 per group.
The museum offers a variety of fun and informative programs for children and their parents, including special family activity days, school tours and workshops.
Workshops Offered: 2013 - 2014 The aim of our workshops for children is to teach science in a friendly manner. Students learn the basics, accomplish tasks successfully and discover that science is fun. By avoiding "technophobia," students are encouraged to pursue future careers in science and technology. We provide a safe, supportive and supervised opportunity to work with hand tools and basic materials. Workshops are suited for children 10 years and older.
Call the museum for schedule information, and to register for classes. 650-321-1004, unless otherwise indicated in the class description. Or complete the online class registration form and return it to MOAH.
Registration must be received 2 weeks before the first class session.
MOAH is located at 351 Homer Avenue in Palo Alto between Bryant and Waverley Streets.
