The Sanford Museum offers a variety of educational programs for groups on various subjects including Astronomy, Geology, and Prehistory. The lower level of the museum tells the prehistory of Northwest Iowa that exhibits many fossils from Iowa's prehistoric sea. Public programs are given monthly at the planetarium which can include slides introducing the constellations of the night sky, and then a visit to the planetarium, where various objects and constellations in the night sky are located and discussed.
