Kids, are you a frequent museum visitor? Join our new kids’ club, the “Museum Explorers.” Nearly every month, the Branigan Cultural Center, Museum of Art, Museum of Nature & Science, and Railroad Museum have something new to see. Some months we even have several new exhibits. When you come to the museums regularly, you can learn a lot about the history, cultures, and art of the Southwest and around the world! In every exhibit, you will also find a guide to help you look carefully at certain sections. The “Museum Explorers” club tracks completion of these guides through a sign-in at the front desk. When you finish a guide, bring it to the desk for a sticker and check the month off on your Museum Explorer Log. At the end of the year, students who have done something each month will receive a special prize.
The program provides structure and incentive for kids to return to the museum regularly and explore new exhibits in depth. By joining the Museum Explorers, children will gain a sense of engagement and connection with the museum that is directly linked to their experiences in our exhibits. Enrollment is open to kids ages 4—12, and all of the City of Las Cruces Museums are part of this new club.
