Visiting a museum is a great way to spend the day
September 29, 2012.
Here in Mt. Pleasant, special activities will start at 11:00 a.m. and will continue until 3:00 p.m.
This will be a great day to visit our museum and learn facts about our community and the early pioneers
that you may not have realized. We will have a "Fact or Fiction" worksheet to fill out for fun and a free prize for filling it out.

Museum Day Live! will be the eighth annual event celebrating education through the nation’s wide array of museums and cultural institutions. For one day only, participating locations across the country will emulate the free admission policy of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington, D.C.-based facilities. The program encourages learning and the dissemination of knowledge nationwide. Last year’s event drew over 350,000 museum-goers to over 1,400 museums.
“With September right around the corner, people can start to plan their Museum Day Live! experience now,” said Jennifer Hicks, Group Publisher, Smithsonian Media. “Our free online ticketing makes accessing museums and cultural institutions easy for anyone that is interested. Over 1,400 museums are expected to participate, making this year’s event even larger than last year.”
