Have you been planning on taking the kids to the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum, but haven’t decided on a day to go? Why not set the date for Wednesday July 11th, 2012 so your kids can connect with nature while learning about the wonders of Lake Michigan’s wildlife? This July 11th, the museum will be hosting Wildlife Wonders – a special event for children age three and older.
The special Wildlife Wonders event is scheduled to occur between 2:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. during which time educators from Lakeshore State Park will be on hand to teach your little ones about the various kinds of plants and animals that call Lake Michigan home. As Wildlife Wonders is a half hour event, you are encouraged to come by early and stick around afterwards to explore the rest of the children’s museum. The museum will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the day of the event.
Filled with fun learning activities aimed at kids age 10 and under, the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum is located in downtown Milwaukee at 929 E. Wisconsin Avenue. The event is being offered for free with regular admission to the children’s museum, which costs $7.50 for adults and children or $6.50 for seniors age 55 and older. Those currently holding a membership to the museum will be admitted free of charge.
Can’t make it on July 11th? Not to worry. There will be another opportunity for your kids to participate in the Wildlife Wonders program this August. The Betty Brinn Children’s Museum will once again be running this special event on Wednesday August 8th, 2012 from 2:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
