Meet the Virtual Purple Museum Educators

Your gift will help stabilize the museum, so that our one-of-a kind educational experiences will continue to thrive when we re-open the museum.


Make sure you’re on our email list and follow us on social. Share the fun by tagging us with a photo or video of your kids enjoying the activities. We may be “social distancing,” but together we can create community online!​​
