Family Fun Days

Our summer Family Fun Days are scheduled for June 27, July 18, and August 8, all from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and included in the regular cost of admission (so free to our members!) Thank you to the R. Harold Burton Foundation for a grant supporting our Family Fun Days.

At a Family Fun Day last fall, we enjoyed activities all about food! Attendees learned Dutch oven cooking basics from Cookie Ron Reed, took turns at the hand crank to make ice cream, and learned the art of cake decorating. We even studied animal digestion and planned out a menu for Buffalo Bill’s Wild West. And some of our guests even shared their favorite family recipes. Find the resulting recipe booklet below!

Where is Stanley?At a past Family Fun Friday, Where’s Stanley at the Museum? kids had a great time with an activity that combined elements of the well-known book series Where’s Waldo and Flat Stanley. Click here to check out some of stories and pictures they created, and download an activity to do yourself!
