It's Not Over!

Not by a long Shot.

Join us this week as we bring in two of our most popular Drop In Day activities ever! Curious Creatures will visit us on Thursday 8/28 for two shows at 10:30am & noon. Stop by and get up close (or maybe not so close) to a baby alligator, snakes and other creatures during these hour long "hands-on" presentations.

Per Ruff's request we are rolling out the red carpet. That's right, this Friday 8/29 we are throwing a premier party for season 3 of FETCH! starring everyone's furry friend, Ruff Ruffman. Stick around for some cake and a question and answer session with FETCH! cast members at 11:am & 1:00.

Dog Days, Art-full Endeavors and a whole lot of Summer Fun!

Our Summer Drop-in Days have been such a hit so far and there's more fun on the way! From the Wienermobile, dog days and puppets to birds of prey and pirates, the past few weeks have been full of great performances, visits and activities! I've included a photo of when Catie Copley, canine ambassador at the Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston, and the U.S. Military All-Stars visited the museum.
Next Thursday, August 14, we will be having our second Dog Days of Summer program. We'll be starting a bit early (10am) with the Beagle Brigade and then we'll have Nancy Bates at 12pm. She will be bringing her Bernese Mountain dog who will do a carting demonstration and a free-style dance routine! We'll also have a visit from the Brockton Blue Dog Shelter. Friday will be our Art-full Endeavors Drop-in Day with airbrush artist Keith Hanson. He will demonstrate his techniques and have shirts and posters to raffle off. To top it all off, he'll be bringing one of the motorcycles he has custom airbrushed. As always we'll be having lots of fun crafts and FETCH! activities so you better be there! And bring your friends!
Have a great weekend!

We are the Champions!

We did it! The Children’s Museum in Easton is the Parents' Pick for Best Children’s Museum in Boston and Providence in the first annual Nickelodeon Parents’ Picks Awards. These awards selected the best family-oriented places and resources in 52 major U.S. cities. We were so thrilled to hear the results and wanted to thank everyone for their help and support! The comments that have been left over the years truly show why our dedicated, imaginative and learning-curious visitors voted for us. One parent commented: “This place is fantastic for all ages! Even us adults learn too!” Another wrote “The focus on education while having fun is terrific!” Others have said “Such imagination and creativity for kids,” “we have been enjoying the museum for years- its nice to see how many great things you keep while incorporating new ones.” “Great ideas, great support, great staff, great place. Thanks for the memories!”

Thank you all so much for summing up exactly why the Children’s Museum in Easton is
a great experience all-around for the entire family! We could not have done it without you!
