Fredericksburg Area Museum and Cultural Center Announces Second Saturdays at the Museum Program

FAMCC-kidtober.jpgJoin us on Saturday, September 8 from 1 - 3 pm for Second Saturdays at the Museum! Your child is invited to learn about the Civil War and Civil War era dolls while they make a yarn doll and a journal about the doll's story. We will talk about the Museum's guests, two Civil War era dolls on temporary loan from the Museum of the Confederacy, Richmond, Virginia, and what the War meant to the children who experienced it. Children are invited to bring their own dolls to share, discuss, and journal about during the activity. The Civil War era dolls will be on display in the Museum's permanent gallery, Fredericksburg At War, from September 3, 2012 through March 3, 2013.

Second Saturdays at the Museum is a regularly scheduled family program that includes hands-on activities, make-and-take crafts, and an opportunity for children to explore the Museum's exhibits with their families. This free drop-in program is held on the second Saturday of each month from 1 – 3 pm, with varying topics and themes. No reservations are required.
