March Museum Happenings!


Spring is in the air, and we are excited to share with you upcoming plans for March at the UM Museum! In February, our educational programs reached 930 on-site (including repeat participants) and 265 participants off-site. We traveled to Jonestown, MS, learned about ice with our Mini Masters, visited the public library, saw our Scott Center friends, and welcomed families on an exciting journey along the Silk Road Trading Route. We hope you will join us for more fun in March!
We had so much fun sharing the Museum with families at our On the Silk Road Family Day!
