Paws to Read

Tuesday, August 27 — Friday, August 30
12pm — 12:30pm

Take time this summer at the Museum to read! Paws to Read is a great way to spark interest in reading at an early age, while preparing children for group activities at school in the fall. Children will listen to a story and participate in an art activity relating to the book of the week.

Drop in each week for a new book and new craft the whole summer! Paws to Read is free with the cost of admission and geared towards children 4-6 years old, but all are welcome.

Reserve your tickets!
Plan a visit for your dog at the AKC CANINE RETREAT!

Out of courtesy to our neighbors, only service dogs and invited demonstration dogs are allowed in the museum.
