Summer Groups

School’s out and campers are ready to play, learn and explore in a fun, hands-on environment.  We’ve turned our current exhibition, Chow: Making the Chinese American Restaurant, into a kid-centered, self-guided exploration through the Museum. Activities include:

  • Explore our gallery through an activity driven scavenger hunt 
  • See what you can toss in a wok
  • Make an origami fortune cookie or take-out box that you decorate yourself
  • Experience our smell synth machines to learn how science makes the flavors in our food
  • Test your skills with a  chopstick challenge
  • Use your cell phone to photograph artifacts in our galleries - your photo may win a prize
  • Copy an image or object you see in the exhibit and add it to our campers art gallery
  • Express your thoughts and opinions about things you see at MOFAD and leave them on sticky notes for other camp groups to read and reply to - we’ll put them on our website.

Summer camps groups are scheduled in one-hour blocks on Wednesdays from 10 am to 4 pm in July and August. Visits are self-guided, and educators will be on hand to greet and orient groups and to assist with hands-on activities. The cost is $5 per child. We can accommodate up to 30 children per visit.
