Ahh – May!
Tulips and lilacs are blooming, grass is growing – and children are flocking to the museum for school tours.
We had our first tour yesterday when the kids from Woodland Elementary in Alexandria came to visit.
It is always a joy to share history with eager young learners.
In the past few years, we have changed the way we do tours. Today, we have guides cover several “zones” in the museum. I get to give the talk in the encampment exhibit and demonstrate a few Native American tools. The kids enjoy this hands-on part of the tour….and so do I.
Here is Phyllis leading our visitors through the Helbing Collection of Native American Arts and Crafts. Gail handled the pioneer sections and Merlin guided guests through the buildings on the museum grounds.
