Professional Development

At the Mississippi Children’s Museum, we believe that learning is serious fun!

At the Mississippi Children’s Museum (MCM), we believe that learning is serious fun. Our professional development workshops are innovative and interactive. They provide early childhood and elementary educators with inspirational, engaging activities to take back to their classrooms. Educators explore the museum during professional development just as their students would on a field trip to make connections between classroom lessons and real-world concepts!
