Looking for a fun, hands-on activity for you and your family?  

Join us in celebrating May Day by making your own May Day Basket! On Saturday, May 13th from 9:00 – 10:00 am. We will be crafting our own paper May Day baskets, which were once a popular way to celebrate the season and show affection for a loved one.
You will be able to decorate and craft your own paper May Day Basket, and create your own paper flowers to go inside. Design your own bouquet of paper flowers to give as a Mother’s Day gift, or to keep for yourself!

Afterward, explore the museum with free admission on the day of the event. Come see what life was like in the newly founded United States, and get a glimpse into the world of John Brown, patriot, merchant, politician, and slave trader.

This FREE event is recommended for families with kids ages 5-12.
