McClung Museum's 50th Community Birthday Party

Saturday, 01 June, 2013

On Saturday June 1 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. the McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture will celebrate a free family friendly birthday party featuring activities, games, crafts, refreshments, door prizes, and a photo booth. This birthday celebration marks the 50th anniversary of the museum's official dedication, June 1, 1963. 

This family friendly event will feature activities related to the museum's permanent and temporary exhibits, providing children the chance to try out prehistoric tools, create an Egyptian Pharaoh's headdress, play pin-the-tooth on the dinosaur, identify birds, and complete an object scavenger hunt. Prizes will be given to McClung Museum "explorers" who complete activity "passports" during the event. A photo booth will allow visitors to take memorable photos with friends and family members.  

Free museum memberships and door prizes will be given away throughout the afternoon for both adults and children. Refreshments will also be provided courtesy of ARAMARK. Reservations are not required.
