Girl Scouts

All merit badge workshops are $20 per scout and $10 per chaperone unless otherwise noted. Merit badge workshops include general admission to the museum. Please note that no physical merit badges or patches will be handed out. While we encourage Scout Leaders to attend along with multiple Scouts from the same troop or pack, adult chaperones are not required to attend these workshops. 

Brownies & Juniors

As a reminder, curriculum follows the Girl Scouts of the USA badge requirements, but all youth of the appropriate age are welcome to attend. All programs include a trolley ride!
