Daisy and Brownie Trails are designed for the youngest Scouts and parents to enjoy the Museum and learn together! Girl Scout Daisies and Brownies will have an introductory lesson on their Trail topic and go on a teaching tour through the related museum exhibit halls. Each Scout will then make their own hands-on craft activity to take home. Trails are designed to make science fun and interesting to all young girls. Completion of each Trail will earn each participant an exclusive HMNS patch. Sessions will last two hours and will begin at 10 a.m. or 1 p.m. Note: a chaperone must stay with the Scout.
