The Ralph Foster Museum offers several educational programs for the younger museum visitors. A hands-on Children's Discovery Room is available free of charge to children ages 4-9 and is open Monday through Friday. A one child / one adult ratio is required to visit the Discovery Room or a four to one ratio for school groups is required.
Loan kits are available for area schools, which contain artifacts, text, audio, and worksheets, and may be loaned to a class for a period of five days. A brochure is available which lists the kit contents and loan instructions.
Complete your visit to the Ralph Foster Museum with a step into the past at the Star School, a turn-of-the-century one-room schoolhouse, which is located just north of the museum.
