The Marion Natural History Museum's Summer Program is an educational science-based program with an emphasis on our coastal environment and is one of the most well known and well regarded in the Southcoast area.
Children from across the country visit us each summer and participate in the program led by our Executive Director, Elizabeth Leidhold, a lifelong educator and environmental scientist.
“I never teach my pupils. I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.”

2020 Summer Programs Canceled
The museum, like so many other organizations, has found its normal operations significantly disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Though the museum is beginning its limited reopening, we will only begin running our summer programs when we can ensure the health and safety of our attendees. You can read more about our reopening on our COVID-19 page.
