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!

Workshop Information:

  • Each workshop is 5 hours long, 9am-3pm (with an hour lunch break).
  • Each workshop counts as .5 continuing education units (CEUs) or 5 hours for childcare workers.
  • Each workshop is $30 (plus an additional $10 for CEU credits).
  • We offer our professional development workshops on site at the museum at various times throughout the years. Please refer to this page or email  for specific dates and workshop descriptions.
  • All professional development workshops are available for off-site presentations.
