Museum on Main welcomes Boy and Girl Scouts throughout the year! Whether your group is working on a journey project, trying to earn a badge or belt loop, or just want to have some fun with history our scout program is a perfect option.
Many students visit the Museum on Main as part of their 3rd Grade Local History Studies, therefore we have an alternative program so students are not repeating the same information.
Cost: $5 per scout, Parents are free. (Museum on Main patch is included in the price for each paying scout.)
Heritage (Girl Scouts of various levels, Tiger Cubs- "Go See It", Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts- belt loop or academic pin) This one hour program is designed to introduce Scouts to the people who lived in the community in the past, including the way people lived, worked, and played in times past. Students examine and identify artifacts from the period, learn about entertainment of the past, and create a simple old time toy they take home.
It's Your Story: Tell It! (Girl Scouts) This one hour program is designed to complement your troop's Journey- It's Your Story: Tell It! We will explore the role women and girls have played in the region throughout history and encourage the girls to learn from their examples!
Collecting (Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts- Boy Scout Belt Loop or Pin) In this one hour program Scouts will learn about Collections from a museum professional, including care, storage, and display of collections including a behind-the-scenes peek at the museum collections room and archives. Scouts are invited to bring their own collection along to present to their fellow scouts and get advice from museum professionals about the care of their collections.
