Mobile Learning Lab
As part of our commitment to ensuring that every child and family has access to high-quality learning experiences right in their communities, we are excited to provide the Kohl Children’s Museum Mobile Learning Lab.
Building off the success of the Pop-Up Museum concept piloted in 2019 – 2021, the Mobile Learning Lab allows us to serve children and families in Lake County by bringing our programs to them directly, inspiring future generations in their own neighborhoods. Participation in the program is free of charge.
