Northeast Texas Children’s Museum schedules summer activities

Northeast Texas Children’s Museum announces summer activities. An emphasis on outdoor activities is reflected in the June calendar at the Northeast Texas Children’s Museum.  “Because of the concern over COVID -19, the Children’s Museum is putting more emphasis on our outdoor area.  Even though temperature checks, handwashing, and frequent sanitized cleaning are a part of our policy for the inside of the building, some parents may still prefer outside play for their children.  We have a great outdoor area which includes the State Farm ship, a sand area, and a dry riverbed with sharks teeth.  However, we are adding specific outdoor activities to enhance the area”, said Sharline Freeman, Executive Director of the Children’s Museum.

Beginning with a visit from the Davis Family Animals on the morning of June 12, weekly outdoor activities are planned.  On Friday, June 19th the outdoor area will become an obstacle course with water balloons instead of basketballs for shooting at the goal, tunnels, and additional outside obstacles to overcome.    This activity will be available in both the morning at 11:00 and the afternoon at 1:30. 

There will even be a Fourth of July Egg Hunt on Friday, July 3rd.  Under the sponsorship of Brookshire’s Grocery, 2,000 eggs were provided to the Children’s Museum for the traditional Easter Egg Hunt.  Because of the closures related to Covid-19, the Easter Egg Hunt has now become the Fourth of July Egg Hunt.  Again, there will be one hunt in the morning and another in the afternoon. 

Regular admission to the Children’s Museum covers the cost for the additional activities.  There will be a limited number of participants, and reservations can be made online or by calling the Northeast Texas Children’s Museum at 903-886-6055.  Updates for summer activities can be seen on the Northeast Texas Children’s Museum’s web page at or the museum Facebook page
