Winter brings lots of things – hot chocolate, snow, and since it gets dark early, lots of stars are visible in the sky too! Since the night rules the winter, the museum is inviting children and their grownups to build their own dreamcatchers. In Native American history, dreamcatchers help keep those bad dreams away. The paper plate dreamcatchers will be built using simple directions and decorations pre-packaged for each participant. Please note: while there are no reservations required, the Museum will have limited tables with rotating availability to construct the project due to social distancing requirements. If all the tables are occupied, please circle back after venturing through the Museum, tables will be sanitized after each family.
