OUR STORY

The Hudson Montessori Museum remains closed to the public to maintain health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can still enjoy our virtual Museum. While the museum may be closed to people, some little furry mice friends continue to explore the museum with much glee!

 

 

Episode 1 –  Can’t blame them

In previous pandemics, like the plague of 1350, the mice were the ones to blame. This time around… it’s not their fault.

Not needing to hide in fear, the mice begin to explore the museum and all its wonders.
