Fall into Science at Burpee!

The Burpee Museum is excited to invite the Rockford community to our museum with fall classes for all ages and all schedules! With multiple classes and badges to choose from, there are options for science enthusiasts and scouts alike!  

While classes will be in-person, class sizes will be small, and social distancing with masks and frequent cleaning will be employed for everyone's safety.  Burpee Museum teachers are vaccinated for your child's protection.
