CRAFT WITH US, IN-PERSON

We have three timeslots available on every crafting day; 10:45 am, 1:00 pm, and 3:00 pm. Each timeslot is for 45 minutes. After the 45 minutes are up, you are welcome to continue your visit at the museum but must vacate the crafting area so it and the items used may be cleaned and disinfected.
