Museum Madness goes “Full STEAM Ahead!” this summer

Museum Madness is headed Full STEAM Ahead, for the 2015 summer discovery activity program for children. This year’s activities are focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics.

Dates for this year week of activities will be July 13 – July 17, 9 a.m. –12 noon.   Application are being taken now.

“We are excited about this year’s activities, “said Jill Smith, Museum Director.  “We are emphasizing the sciences and hopefully opening  science and engineering doors for their minds to enter. We’ve got a great line-up of instructors, and New Albany Junior Auxiliary will be partnering again with us this year. “

The five days of discovery for children ages  – incoming second graders to incoming fifth graders include:

  • 1 . Grossology – Rheta Ann West
  • 2. Math & Art –Can you Tessellate? Rebecca Browning

Cost for the week is $50 for children or grandchildren of the Union County Historical Society members and $65 for those who are not.    That is $10 and $13 per day respectively.   “We hope this would be a good incentive for those who are not members to become members of the society, Smith said.

Most of the activities of the week will take place in the Art House, which is located on Cleveland Street behind the museum.  Fee is required when you register your children.  You can come to the museum at 114 Cleveland Street or get more information by calling 662-538-0014 or email
