Summer Programs

The Marion Natural History Museum's Summer Program is an educational science-based program with an emphasis on our coastal environment, and is one of the most well known and well regarded in the Southcoast area. Children from across the country visit us each summer and participate in the program.

During Summer 2019 the Marion Natural History Museum is offering a half-day summer program to explore some of Marion’s unique natural areas. We will be exploring our rocky inter-tidal shoreline, salt marshes, estuaries as well as freshwater riverbanks, forest, swamps, ponds and bogs. Daily we will take trips to look for the birds, amphibians, fish and invertebrates that make these areas so special.

Each morning will involve hands-on exploration, experiments, crafts and journaling while being outdoors. Your child will enjoy being a Coastal Explorer with the Marion Natural History Museum! Space is limited so make sure to register early for this summer program. Perfect for girls and boys entering grades 3 – 6.

Each week will involve different activities so sign up for one week or both!
