A Night at the Museum Features Fun Activities for Summer Learning
On Friday, June 13, 885 participants spent a night of learning at the Newark Museum.
A Night at the Museum is a three-hour family program for parents and their pre-school age children to participate in different curriculum-based activities. This year-end program reinforces the experiences that took place during the school year through trips to the Museum and classroom visits by museum educators, and demonstrates how children can experience the Museum out-of-school with their families. An emphasis is placed on introducing the range of family programs available for Newark families such as weekend drop-ins, Saturday workshops, festivals and family days, planetarium shows and summer camp.
A Night at the Museum features family tours, hands-on art and science workshops and planetarium shows. This year Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends participated in a meet and greet. The fire department, police department and EMS responders were also in attendance to teach safety. Each student left the event with a backpack filled with materials that will keep their minds engaged over the summer months.
“This was my first time participating at the A Night at the Museum. As a presenter, I was very impressed with the diversity of the lessons and activities, the overall organization of the program, and the impressive number of children and families that attended. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this worthwhile program,” said Julia Wieners RN.
