Maine State Museum 2019 February School Vacation Week Family Activities
Maine State Museum February School Vacation Activities-Comfort: Quilts, Teddy Bears, and Favorite Toys
The Maine State Museum is working on a new exhibit due to open July 2020! It’s about quilts, about history, about community, and about the comfort we get from special objects. And we want to hear from you about something special that you treasure and gives you comfort.
We invite visitors of all ages to come to the museum on Wednesday, February 20 & Friday, February 22, 2019 between 10:00 AM -12:00 PM & 1:00-3:00 PM, we especially want to hear from families and kids!
For free admission, please bring that special something that brings you comfort - a blanket, a baby quilt, a toy, a stuffed animal (please no live animals or weapons).
While at the museum participants will have a chance to take a picture with their special object and then try out our video kiosk and record what makes their comfort item so special. In the future we will be posting videos on our website, and using some of the stories in our new exhibit.
10:00 AM -12:00 PM & 1:00-3:00 PM
