Let's Explore Backpacks

The Museum’s distinct Let’s Explore Backpacks offer activity-filled ways for children (recommended ages 5-10) and adult companions to explore together the outdoor sculpture collection on the University’s beautiful campus. Children then create their own works of art to take home. Each backpack is available in Spanish.
