Let us bring our museum to you!
The mobile Sacramento Children’s Museum is a school outreach program where Museum educators come to your school and transform your classroom or multipurpose room into a mini museum. Each session begins with a brief introductory lesson followed by exploration and play time at several hands-on exhibits and activity stations. See each program description for the recommended grade level.
Programs for Grades TK-3
Building & Engineering
Design, build, test, and tinker! Students will immerse themselves in the engineering process of prototyping while working with various large- and small-scale building kits.
Recommended for grades TK-3.
Air and Flight
Explore the dynamics of flight! Students will explore various activities that introduce the concepts of flight, including making parachutes, measuring distance, and data collection.
Recommended for Grades 2-3.
Play with color! Students will look, play, and create with color in several hands-on activities, including an art project, color mixing, and our colors in motion wind tunnels.

As an emotion explorer, you will go on an epic SEL journey! Students will learn skills to release negative emotions, curate positive feelings, create a special memento, and practice empathy through art.

Get ready for a boisterous session of hands-on exploration of sound and music! Students will touch, feel, and play a variety of instruments. Each student will make a take home music maker.

Mission: Imagination Challenge
Your mission: to challenge your creativity and building skills while learning about the engineering design process. Students work in collaborative groups to solve a problem with a mystery box of supplies. Challenges can be tailored to meet specific content standards.
Recommended for grades 1-3.
Note: There is an additional $25 per class for supplies for Mission Imagination Challenge.
Van Go is booked on a first come, first serve basis. Check available dates on the reservation page. Each session lasts about an hour, and we can only accommodate one class at a time per session (please see class maximums).
If you would like to book multiple classes at your school on the same day, we would prefer to set up in one location only (for example, one classroom, multipurpose room, or in the library), and each class will rotate through that one location throughout the day.
Reservations are not guaranteed until payment in full is received.
