“The museum within the Museum” 

Education is a key part of the Museum of the Red River’s mission. It provides year-round programming for all ages in the form of art classes, summer camps and more. Each program is designed to complement the Museum’s exhibits and foster a greater love of art and natural history. For more information about upcoming events, please contact Christina Eastep ([email protected]).

The original Museum now houses the Holland and Sallie Webb Learning Center.  It honors the service of Sallie Webb, a dedicated volunteer of over 25 years, and the support of her late husband Holland. The Center serves as an interactive learning space for children of all ages. Activities are available free-of-charge during normal business hours.
