Join us for Kids Club at the Museum. Kids Club is held last Saturdays of each month April through September, 1:00 to 3:00. It is two hours full of fun activities held in the lower level of the Museum and in the Wagon Shop. April 27 will be the first one for the year and kids will be doing a Wagon Shop project, as well as having the opportunity to explore the Museum. Activities are appropriate for ages 5-10. (Younger kids than 5 should be accompanied by a parent.) Subsequent last Saturday activities are as follows: May 25, trying out weaving and spinning and other yarn art; June 29, patriotic paper crafts plus getting ready for the 4th of July parade; July 27, button and seashell project; August 31, making a book ; September 28, making cider in an old fashioned press and apple crafts and tasting. Come and enjoy a little hands on history!
The Steilacoom Historical Museum, Wagon Shop and Orr Home are now open Saturday and Sundays from 1-5 p.m. Come learn something about Steilacoom's history - the first incorporated town in the Washington territory - or go back in time and build something in the Wagon Shop or see how they lived in the early 1900s via the Orr Home!
