Community Programs

The Marion Natural History Museum frequently runs programs appropriate for adults and large groups including families with children.

All are welcome to attend! Seating tends to be limited at these programs, so we recommend you reserve your spot in advance, but tickets are always available at the door.

Our community programs are geared towards subjects that will interest and engage people of all ages.
