People often ask, “Is the Halle Heart Children’s Museum open for tours during the summer?” The answer: a resounding YES!
As the weather heats up outside, things only get cooler in the HHCM. During the summer, the museum switches gears from our regular school field trip experience to offer the same quality education in a fun summer camp format!
Camp Heart Beat visitors can look forward to a two-hour tour through eight interactive exhibits that teach about the cardiovascular system and lifestyle choices for heart-healthy living. Our knowledgeable Heart Guides explain the importance of eating a healthy diet, getting plenty of exercise, and always saying no to tobacco. Campers can listen to animal heartbeats, play a round of mini golf through a giant capillary, and even cool off in our fully equipped Goldman Legacy movie theater. Plus, the Camp Heart Beat package includes the added benefit of a heart-healthy lunch provided by St. Mary’s Food Bank.
Camp Heart Beat tours are available May 30-August 31st and begin at 10:00am or 12:00pm. Admission per child is $2.50, along with one free chaperone per five children.
So if you’re a summer camp, church group, day care, or other group seeking a unique, educational (and air conditioned!) experience for kids, Camp Heart Beat is just the thing! Reservations are required, so visit our Camp Heart Beat reservations page to see available tour times and to register your group online today.
