Museum Madness concludes summer schedule
After four weeks of fun, Museum Madness concluded its summer program with a pioneer basket weaving class. J.D. Jones of the Tombigbee pioneers showed the children how to weave a basket by hand.
“We have had a lot more response this year. We even had to turn some people away because the class had filled up. It is definitely important to pre-register for the programs,” Union County Heritage Museum Director Jill Smith said.
Throughout Museum Madness campers enjoyed programs that taught about pottery, percussion, origami and basket weaving.
“The origami class was a really great chance for the kids to experience traditions of a different culture. It went really well,” Smith said.
Smith said she hoped in future years the museum would be able to offer more classes. She explained the kids always want to come back each week and do something new.
“We are offering great enrichment for these kids during the summer. That is something I always looked for as a parent. We hope to continue to develop and expand Museum Madness each summer,” Smith said.
Museum Madness is for kids entering the third through fifth grade.
