Southern Museum to Host “Museum Magic” Event

October 3rd, 2017 by Pam Davis

The Southern Museum will host a seasonal event full of magical fun for families on October 28 from 9:30 am to 5 pm. 

With a wizarding flair, kids and parents can visit different stations to discover the science behind potions (and even slime!), practice writing with quill pens and invisible ink, learn about stars and astronomy, make a candle, create and play with magical creatures, and even have a chance to design a wand! Collect stamps in your map and receive treats as you go. Travel through the invisible tunnel and take a family picture at the haunted forest. The feature film Monsters, Inc. will be playing throughout the day in the theater.  All families are encouraged to dress in costume. 

The event activities are specifically developed for children ages 3-10 to utilize motor skills, have fun with language arts, and discover physical and space science. Dena Bush, Director of Operations, explained, “The Southern Museum welcomes hundreds of small children and their families throughout the year.  We wanted to create a safe, and not purposefully scary, event especially for these visitors during the Halloween season.  However, all ages are invited, and hopefully, our activities will trick you into learning while having fun that’s a treat!”
