Daily Programs

Throughout the day Treehouse staff and volunteers share stories, lead exhibit discovery activities, offer games, and more. These informal activities are announced as they happen, and visitors are invited to participate as they like. However, in addition, Treehouse offers even more daily programming, all free with the price of admission.
