Summer program for young historians at the Faulkner County Museum

The Faulkner County Museum is hosting a special program with stories and crafts for young people from 10 to 11:30 a.m. every Monday throughout the summer.

Young people learned about “Pioneer Gardening: Toad Houses” on the first Monday of the program.

Each Monday, staff and volunteers will focus on one exhibit or theme from the museum. There will be a story and a related craft activity that children can finish and take home. Admission is free but donations to cover the cost of supplies are welcome.
