Now Open! Come enjoy a new way to get up close with nature at the Hastings Museum. And Teachers: Ask about booking time in the Outdoor Classroom as an add-on to your field trips!

Our Outdoor Classroom is designed to entice the young to explore the world around them through music, art, play, and movement. It features special stations for art, building, and learning about the weather; there are walls dedicated to music making and magnetic tubing, as well as a discovery table to really examine a variety of natural items.

This new space is FREE with paid Museum admission or a Museum Membership. It’s also a great add-on for school field trips, scouting groups, and our summer fun classes for kids.
The Outdoor Classroom will be open to the public on weekends and on the occasional weekday when local schools are out of session. For now through October, the following schedule has been announced.

OPEN Weekends through October:
Saturdays: 10 am – 2 pm
Sundays: 2-4 pm
Plus two out-of-school Fridays:
OCT 14 & 21: 10 am – 2 pm
We hope you make plans today to join us!
