Weekly Programs

The Santa Fe Children's Museum offers regular weekly programs and special events overflowing with experiential, inquiry-based hands-on activities that align with New Mexico State Curriculum Standards.

Our programs are all designed to offer science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) activities that build upon a child's natural sense of joy and discovery. We encourage and cultivate habits of inquiry about the world, how things work, and promote plenty of FUN!
