    Education

    The Stamford Museum & Nature Center’s education programs are designed to inspire creativity, foster self-discovery, and nurture an appreciation for lifelong learning. Our education programs, which take place both on- and off-site, are designed to share with learners of all ages the wonders and workings of the art, natural, and agricultural worlds.

    At the Stamford Museum and Nature Center, we offer year-round classes in art and nature, science and agriculture, for toddlers through adults. Our classes make use of many of our valuable resources at the museum including the pond, the farm, the forests, the planetarium, and the art galleries.
