VanGo! Mobil Sacramento Children's Museum smaller

Let us bring our museum to you!
Van Go!

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. Van Go is designed for students in Grades Preschool through 3.

Programs for Grades TK-3

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.

Explore the dynamics of flight! Students will be able to answer the question “How do airplanes fly?” through exploration of the forces of flight through exciting demos and investigating at hands-on stations. 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 tunnel. Recommended for grades TK-2.

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. Great for all grade levels!

Reservation Information

  • 60-minute session (1 class): $250
  • Additional same-day, same-program sessions: $200 for each additional class
  • Travel fees: $1 per mile round trip greater than 25 miles from the museum

For Spring 2023, VanGo! can be booked for Wednesdays or Thursdays on a first-come, first-serve basis. 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.
