This June, children between the ages of 4 and 12 and their families are invited to attend exciting summertime activities at Scottsdale’s Museum of the West! Families will enjoy special presentations, gallery explorations and fun craft activities that are designed to enrich children’s understanding of the American West.
Each week in the series features a uniquely western theme. Click the dates below for a more detailed description of each event:
Hear a presentation by Hashknife Pony Express Captain Mark Reynolds, craft a unique postage stamp, and mail yourself a note that will travel 200 miles by horse!
Step into the boots of a hired ranch hand with a presentation by living historian C.L. “Lee” Anderson, experience the museum’s sensory station, and craft a one-of-a-kind cowboy cuff of your own.
Learn the stories of western families from living history interpreter Michelle Martin, chart the trail of the Lewis and Clark expedition, and create a personal journal to take home.
Drop-in between the hours of 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. to enjoy some western fun! Speakers’ presentations will take place at 10 a.m. and repeat at 11:30 a.m. Program admission for children and adults is $5 per person, and free for museum members. Museum admission is required if full gallery access is desired, and all children must be accompanied by an adult.
