Lights and cameras highlight the next Family Fun Day at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. “Lights, Camera, Action” invites families to join in the fun by exploring stations in the Center’s Whitney Western Art Museum and Buffalo Bill Museum.
This Family Fun Day takes visitors on an adventure that encourages them to look closer at western art as well as light and shadows. As stars on camera, participants also have the opportunity to share their opinion about their favorite museum pieces. The event takes place March 14, 3 – 7 p.m. Families are welcome to come for the entire time or drop in for as long as they wish.
“As with all of our Family Fun Days, we encourage families to come to ‘Lights, Camera, Action’ as a group and participate in the activities together,” says Emily Buckles, the Center of the West’s Interpretive Specialist and coordinator of family programs. She adds, “It’s a great event for families to make memories together!”
Thanks to a special grant from the R. Harold Burton Foundation, the Center’s Family Fun Days are free to Center of the West members and just $10 per non-member family. A family-friendly dinner is free to all families attending the event. To find out more about Family Fun Days and other educational programming, contact Buckles at [email protected] or 307-578-4110.
Since 1917, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West has been committed to the greatness and growth of the American West, keeping western experiences alive. The Center, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, weaves the varied threads of the western experience—history and myth, art and Native culture, firearms, and the nature and science of Yellowstone—into the rich panorama that is the American West. The Center of the West has been honored with numerous awards, including the prestigious 2012 National Tour Association’s Award for “favorite museum for groups,” the 2013 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, and, most recently, one of the “Top 10 Must See Western Museums” by True West magazine.
