Wear Your Costumes!

All October visitors are welcome to wear their costumes when visiting the museum! (Regular masks for safety still must be worn with costumes, even those that have decorative masks.) Don't forget to reserve a date/time online before visiting!

Story Walk

Check out our Story Walk in upper Henry Law Park (along the railing around the pavilion). The story is "The Little Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything," and is perfect for ages 3-7...and grown-ups! Read it anytime with lots of sound effects and movement for a fun time outside in the beautiful fall weather!
