NEW! Stories Alive!
Strawbery Banke welcomes families back to the museum grounds for an outdoor, physically-distanced Stories Alive! Program.  Each day is based on a historical fiction picture book that is brought to life with crafts, activities, and games based on history, science, and geography. Bring the whole family and enjoy learning in a safe and historical setting. Books are geared to ages 5 – 10 with activities designed for fun for all ages.

Stories Alive! classes take place Thursday in May from 10 AM to 12 PM and follow all COVID-19 protocols. Additionally, all participants receive a temperature check upon arrival. Each family is at their own table, under their own tent, and provided with materials for activities designed for physical distancing.
