All programs correlate with the State of California’s Academic Content Standards for Science, Math, History/Social Science, and/or Language Arts, the Science Framework for California Public Schools, Common Core State Standards, and Next Generation Science Standards.

The Museum and Your Class

Educational Museum Tours - Our exhibit galleries have a lifetime of learning opportunities.
