On this page you will find a variety of resources to enhance your museum visit and extend the educational experience beyond the walls of the Museum!
SECTION UNDER CONSTRUCTION
This section includes activities and study guides that are meant for the classroom, either before or after a visit to the Museum.
Click here for pre- and post-visit materials that supported Invasion of the Bloodsuckers: Bedbugs and Beyond, an exhibition that was on view in 2011 and 2012, about the evolution and life history of a number of blood-feeding arthropods including bedbugs, ticks and mosquitos.

During your visit to the Museum you may want to provide your students with materials to direct and focus their experience. To that end, we have created a number of mystery hunts that you are welcome to download, print and reproduce. PLEASE NOTE that on many mornings, particularly in the spring, some exhibit halls will be closed for programs and students will not be able to get into certain halls to answer some of the questions – it is impossible for us to predict these closures very far in advance, but please contact our scheduler two or three days before your scheduled visit to find out more. Also, please bring pencils and clipboards or something else to write on.
