Friday Family Features at DCM

Friday evenings at the Museum are more "eventful" than ever before with the launch of our new Family Feature initiative.

On Friday, October 4, we celebrated Fairy Tale Fest, the first event in the Family Feature series, and we pulled out all the stops! Guests were greeted with treasure maps, where “X” marked the spot to all the evening’s special activities. Each of our Neighborhoods was transformed to include storybook-themed activities ranging from creating sparkly treasure trinkets and lush pouches, to a shadow puppet show of The Bremen Town Musicians, and an interactive reading of Stone Soup. Even our S.M.A.R.T. Café got into the theme, featuring Jack ‘O’ Lantern Spice flavored popcorn and a hands-on cookie decorating craft.

Visitors also had the opportunity to join our #purplechairclub by uploading their photo taken in our famous purple chair decked out with storybook-themed props. Other activities included face painting, boat building, and most fun of all – children dressed to the nines in their favorite storybook character costumes!

Checkout all the fun here!

Family Features are scheduled throughout the year with activities, performances, and special experiences not available on a typical Museum visit. Events are set during the Museum’s extended hours on Friday nights from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Join us for our next Family Feature: Create! Giftable Crafts on Friday, December 6 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. for an evening of cozy crafting. Come dressed in your comfiest pajamas, enjoy toasty treats from our S.M.A.R.T. Café, and create handmade masterpieces perfect for giving to extra-special loved ones. This event will feature both free and ticketed activities. Check our website for more details as they become available
