It's busy here at the museum this week (and next week, for sure), but not with the usual crowd of fun kids! Nope, we're busy cleaning during our annual two week spruce up. As some of you may know, we are closed for the next two weeks. But don't worry, once we're open we'll be shiny and brand new! Here are some pictures of what it looks like when we're closed down and cleaning.
We have some great things planned for re-opening that we can't wait to share with you guys! First and foremost is our brand new exhibit! At the opening we'll be presenting our new fossil exhibit! Yep, we have some real tracks from the dinosaurs! Thanks to the folks at the Dinosaur State Park in Rocky Hill, Conneticut for donating some of those tracks to us :) It promises to be a "rawr"ing good time of an exhibit.
Thanks also to our friends from Bridgewater State University and Stonehill College and their Into The Streets program for helping us during our spruce-up! We also look forward to having Best Buy and Rockland Trust volunteers next week! We really appreciate it and the museum wouldn't be sparkling without you guys! Also, special thanks to Bob and Dale, the guys at Paramount Rug Co. for installing our beautiful new floor! You guys rock!
Thanks so much for stopping in and checking up on us! We can't wait to have you all back here for the new exhibits, new paint, new floor and new fall classes! Also, don't forget to check out our Scarecrow Stomp page for our first big event in September!
And, when you get back, if you happen to see Andrew thank him for all the cleaning he did on the phone :)
