Storybook Discovery Days

Saturday, June 13th

In our cozy parlor setting, the joys of reading and the wonders of discovery are shared with young children, even before they can read on their own. The series runs from the fall through the spring, with a fun-filled morning of reading and sharing, plus a hands-on nature or art making activity.

The series final program honors Fly a Kite Day. We will be reading stories all about high-flying adventures! Kids and parents will work together to make their own paper kites. Then, we will test them out in our beautiful garden to see how they fly!

Recommended for children under 6 and their families. Suggested Donation: $5 per family. This series is made possible with support from Dr. Marge Hendler, specialist in children's literature and early childhood education.

Garden Creativi-Tea

Tuesday, July 14 – August 11th, 12:30 pm -3:30 pm

Summertime means creativity and tea! Bring the entire family for a new afternoon of art making and refreshing iced tea in the Voelker Orth garden. From sculpting monstrous creatures, to painting treasure boxes and more, each week we will feature a new hands-on art making activity that will let you explore your creative side. Drop-in, bring a friend, and spend as much time as you'd like in our Museum's beautiful backyard garden. On rainy days we take the program indoors.

Admission is $3 per session, or $6 per family.

Details on each week's activity will be posted on this website in July.
