In celebration of Lew Wallace's 183rd birthday, the Museum will be having a party. On Saturday, April 10th, the museum will play host to a variety of activities. In the Study, all visitors will get an opportunity to build their own study using Legos. They may also choose to color a replica of the stained glass that is in the Study's atrium. Build Ben Hur's chariot, sculpt with playdough and make a fan are activities taking place in the Carriage House.
The lawn area will be host to 1800's games. Croquet, wooden hoop rolling, tug of war and learning to walk on stilts are just some of the games planned. Cookies and punch will be served and admission is free!
While visitors are celebrating with birthday games and goodies, the wildflowers will be in full bloom. Warm weather has forced the wildflowers to bloom, seemingly, all at once. Some of the flowers in bloom are: blue violets, harbinger of spring, cutleaf toothwort, spring beauty, myrtle, pansies, tulips, daffodils, hyacinth, trout lilies, and the magnolia trees are in full regale. Stop by for a visit and enjoy the day of fun and activites and nature at its best.
