Once a year, the Joseph Moore Museum has a chance to show off all its gusto and demonstrate the whole museum. What am I talking about? Why, our open house!
The open house demonstrates all aspects of the museum, not just the typical public display – we hold special activities and open up the collections, complete with staff members to demonstrate what we do behind the scenes. We even open three hours more than usual (10 a.m. – 5 p.m.) in order to pack in all the extra fun.
This year, activities included Ancient Adena tattoos (not permanent), face-painting, planetarium shows, and weight measurements on other planets. The live animals also get to see the entire museum, as staff members carry them around upstairs.
Did you miss it this time? Well, no worries! Check out our Facebook page to keep posted on special events, and keep in mind the open house for next spring!
