Children’s Monthly Programs

These free programs occur monthly at the museum and are made possible through the generosity of Sandy and Kathy Griffin. Each program is 45 minutes long. We read a book or tell a story, have an activity, and then a light snack. Most children who attend are 4-9 years old, but we welcome all children to the program. All programs are help at the museum at Myers Cottage.
