Community Programs

The second Saturday of every month is free from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. for families with school-aged children. Families are invited to the Activity Center to participate in hands-on activities that delve into the art, history and culture of the region. Each Second Saturday focuses on a specific theme based on the Museum’s collection and/or special exhibitions.

This Second Saturday focuses on the Gloucester Sea Serpent. Participants will get to listen to sea serpent stories, examine accounts of the Serpent's 1817 visit, create sea serpent reliefs and play sea serpent bingo while exploring the galleries.
