Summer Break Activities
School’s out for summer - don’t let the brain drain happen on your watch! Bring the kids to Hagley this summer and try some fun learning activities for families. The second floor of the Visitor Center will feature various activities daily all summer long.
Families can work together to discover solutions to science and engineering challenges. Hagley’s "Easy Does It!" exhibit area, featuring hands-on activities with simple machines, will also be open during this time for visitors to explore.
Activities are included in admission and free for members.
