Playful Pastimes Opening Reception

March 8 @ 4:00 pm 7:00 pm

Join us for the opening of our newest exhibit Playful Pastimes that explores the golden age of “accessible leisure” when everyday folks found themselves with leisure time and extra cash. See how Americans indulged in a variety of fun hobbies and activities from sand and surf to ports, board games, the circus or even bicycle races to name a few. You’ll glimpse unique artifacts from the Museum’s collection including images and artifacts from Staples High School’s earliest sports teams, a wooden bicycle, an homage to silent film and much more. Be the first to see this interactive big-top style exhibit throughout the Museum’s spaces. 

Become a Museum member and enjoy a private tour from 4 to 5pm. Refreshments will be served throughout the opening.
