"An American Celebration" is Strawbery Banke Museum's annual salute to America, Independence Day and the joys of summer. Beginning with a US Naturalization Ceremony, Strawbery Banke gives multiple generations the opportunity to enjoy the 10-acre living history museum on a day that American history takes the spotlight. An "Old Fashioned Field Day" activities invite families to participate in ten different historical games, representing a number of different time periods in may different locations across the site. Participants receive ribbons for each game as prizes, and the festivities culminates in the traditional kids' decorated bike/wagon parade at 1:45 pm. All children under 17 are admitted FREE thanks to sponsors BAE Systems. As a Blue Star Museum, active duty military and their families are FREE.
All activities -- except for the Swing Dance -- are included with regular museum admission; children are admitted FREE thanks to a grant from BAE Systems. Adult (17 and older) tickets are $20. Adult members receive half-price admission ($10). As a Blue Star Museum, Strawbery Banke admits active duty military and their families FREE. Strawbery Banke also admits veterans free.
