The Buffalo Bill Center of the West invites the community to the first Family Fun Day of 2019 on January 18, 3–7 p.m. WinterFest offers families the enjoyment of time together, activities, hands-on projects.
Many of us may want to hunker down and hibernate through a long cold winter. Instead, venture out to the Center to find wintry activities throughout the museum galleries.
WinterFest activities are designed to to help families re-discover the galleries through a fresh perspective. Participants will learn about animals’ strategies for surviving the winter, explore some of the science behind ice crystals, and get a glimpse of how winter travel has changed over time.
“It is always fun to share winter with kids. The more they learn about winter, the more they love being outside in the cold!” says Emily Buckles, Interpretive Specialist at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West.
The Center serves a complimentary dinner from 5–6:30 p.m. for the first 200 Family Fun Day participants.
Thanks to a grant from the R. Harold Burton Foundation, our Family Fun Days are free for Center of the West members, and just $10 per family for non-members.
Since 1917, the award-winning Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming, has devoted itself to sharing the story of the authentic American West.
