On September 26th nearly 500 people visited the museum for a day of family fun during our fall Community Day. Sponsored by the Jr. League of Charleston, the day consisted of free admission, art-making activities for children, face painting, and musical and dance performances.

 

Visitors gather on the front steps to listen to banjo and guitar performers Lowcountry Bluegrass, to grab a balloon, and to get their face painted before moving inside
