Stepping into the Past Saturday Series
Just another benefit to spending a Saturday with us!
One Saturday a month we have demonstrations and displays of traditional arts, crafts, and trades. These demonstrations are included with your regular admission unless otherwise noted.
Activities take place from 10 am-2 pm (unless otherwise noted) on the following Saturdays in 2021. All 2021 activities have been planned with the potential need to go virtual due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Contact the museum to inquire whether an activity will be taking place in person or virtually closer to each event.
