K-5 Curriculum

The Jackson Hole Children's Museum specializes in what other's can't - MAKING A SPECTACULAR MESS! Our STEAM programs are two hours long, beginning with interactive, hands-on, exploratory stations and ending with big, messy, FUN and CREATIVITY!  Our curriculums and teachers honor self-discovery by giving students choices in their own education; creating life long lovers of LEARNING.
