Drop-in Activities

The History Center’s exhibits and collections can help Scouts fulfill certain requirements for Girl Scout Badges, Cub Scout Adventures, and Boy Scout Merit Badges beyond what is offered through the Badge Day program. The History Center has created resources to help Scouts fulfill those requirements. These resources can be printed off at home and brought to the History Center to use at any time or picked up from the admissions desk. Scouts and their parents or chaperones must pay the regular admission rates when using these resources.
