Kids Day is back at the Creston Museum!
On June 11, the Creston Museum will open its doors to kids of all ages for a special day of old-fashioned fun and games.
Lessons in the schoolhouse begin at 10:30, 1:30, and 3:30 — and the schoolma’am is strict, so don’t be late!
There will be ice cream and lemonade from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., and the Prospectors Club will be on hand with its gold-panning setup from 1-3 or later. You’re guaranteed to find gold — which you can keep — and you will receive a certificate and photograph to go with it.
The Old-Fashioned Candy Store will be open for business all day. Thanks to the support of Overwaitea Foods, you can buy candy at old-fashioned prices. Bring a few pennies — or try to win a few in the games and races — to get three gumballs or jujubes for a penny!
See if you can find all of the objects hidden in the museum’s treasure hunt. If you haven’t already checked out Artifact or Artifiction, this is a good time to see if you can spot the lie among twelve specially-chosen stories about some of the museum’s artifacts.
It all goes from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on June 11. Gold panning is $10; the ice cream and lemonade picnic is $1 per person. All other activities, including admission to the museum, are free. Kids 12 and under — please remember to bring an adult with you.
For more information, contact the museum at 250-428-9262 or email@example.com. The Creston Museum, located at 219 Devon Street, is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. daily starting on June 11.
