Second Saturdays

SECOND SATURDAY Family Days at the Frazier History Museum offer engaging games, crafts, activities and historical performances revolving around a selected theme – all included in the regular price of admission!

Each SECOND SATURDAY features a new theme and a unique line-up of activities that often involve visiting our exhibitions and participating in family-friendly lessons and games in our Education Center.

SECOND SATURDAY activities are always free with paid admission.

Upcoming SECOND SATURDAY Family Days:

January 10 – A History of Everyday Objects

11 a.m. – 3 p.m.   Thomas Edison Cutout

When you look around the house or walk around town, you are surrounded by thousands of things with fascinating stories of how they came to be. Through exploration, activities and fun we invite you to come learn the history of everything from paper clips to elevators to toilets and more.

Our friends from The Thomas Edison House will join us for the day with hands-on activities and friendly educators, and we’ll highlight our temporary exhibit Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, which closes on Feb 1st.
