The Murrieta Museum offers two sensory bins for young children to get hands-on experience with their community’s history. Thanks to an Eagle Scout Project by Brendan Brady, children can experience a dino dig and how to use Native American tools. Eagle Scout Derek Hayes made the museum’s sensory cabinet where we will place artifacts inside the drawers. The museum also offers an activity sheet, puzzles, and hope to soon offer activities for the whole family to enjoy.
