A Quieter Time In The Museum

After school and early evening are often a quieter time in the Museum for family or therapeutic visits. Third Thursday is a day each month to incorporate special resources and programming for visitors with accessibility or medical issues. All families are welcome at the Museum on Third Thursdays.
