It’s Women’s History month, and you can celebrate #thefutureisfemale this weekend at not one–but two!–special museum events. You also won’t want to miss a farm-themed spring festival, a super cute puppy-themed play, or a kid-friendly celebration of Native American culture and traditions. Read on for the deets.
Amazing Farm Fun’s Spring Festival The Hunt is set up so that each child obtains a typical Easter basket full of eggs (25). Baskets available for purchase upon arrival. Meet and Greet with the Easter Bunny 30 minutes prior to the hunt time and find the Golden Goose Egg for an extra special prize! There are many other activities included with your admission to enjoy, including: giant slide hills, huge jumping pillows, hayrides, animal feeding areas, pedal kart track, swinging bridge, and much more! Sat. Event details.
Opening Celebration: Native Voices Join Port Discovery for a day full of special activities including special performances and demonstrations from representatives of Maryland Native American tribes. Plus, join in activities designed to teach visitors about American Indian culture and traditions. Create pinch pots using clay such as traditionally used for pottery, try your hand at making birch bark containers (makuks) used for storing sugar collected as maple sap, try your hand at uncovering cultural materials from the past in our “Dig It!” activity, and learn about the unique way of representing ideas without words or letters with pictographs! Sat. Event details.
The Irish Tenors With the ‘gift of the gab’ they share on full display, The Irish Tenors will, with a full orchestra, bring their special magic to the legendary treasury of Irish music that is loved the world over. They have performed this glorious music in their own inimitable style to millions of listeners around the world and their TV broadcasts on American television, particularly PBS, have continuously topped the viewing charts, just like their numerous platinum recordings. Sat. Event details.
Women’s History Month Family Day This Women’s History Month, visit the National Postal Museum to learn all about notable women from the past through the present and reflect upon the meaningful contributions of these extraordinary individuals. Discover the various postal roles typically held by women over the last two centuries and get to know the stories of pioneers who broke the mold, such as the first female postmaster Mary Katherine Goddard. Enjoy a scavenger hunt throughout the museum, activity stations, and special guests like “Amelia Earhart” and female representatives from the Postal Inspection Service. You can even take home a postal museum airplane as a souvenir. Sat. Event details.
Complete Dogness Complete Dogness is a new family friendly performance about a delightful little doggy with bad habits. She can eat a delicious wool sweater or steal a whole block of cheese in no time. But there is hope as Barky learns new tricks and as the whole family adjusts. The performance incorporates spoken word, movement, and music. Sun. Event details.
We Can Do It! Women in Aviation and Space Take a look back at groundbreaking women of the past and forward to what can be achieved by women in the future. Storytimes, hands-on activities and online resources will also be available throughout the month. Sat. Event details.
