As spring blooms, so do plans for friends and family get-togethers. The NMOT is offering three small group friend and family programs for 2021. Guests can book the Creation Station for a private playtime, arrange to be a 'Conductor for the Day' on the miniature train, or plant yourself in the gardens with your 'Pollinator Picnic Table Pals.'

Private Creation Station Boarding Time. With 17 of your nearest and dearest friends, you'll have The Creation Station all to yourselves. Celebrating a birthday, a preschool graduation, or just spending time with close friends, this big space is sure to make your little group have a special time to remember.

'Conductor for the Day.' Join our C.P. Huntington Miniature Train Crew for 60-minutes of fun as you find out first hand what it's like to be a train engineer. Our train crew certainly won't let you leave empty-handed. You'll take home a conductor hat, bandana, and, of course, a train whistle.

'Pollinator Picnic Table Pals.' Plant yourself at the Museum for a bloomin' good time. You'll be given a picnic basket filled with activities for the kids in your group. You'll create, have fun, and enjoy nature in a BEE-utiful pollinator garden.
