Museum on Main presents It’s A Circus! on Saturday, September 28th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. as part of the museum’s Free Family Day events.
This free family day event will take place at Museum on Main, 603 Main Street in Downtown Pleasanton and is part of the ninth annual nationwide Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day Live!
At It’s A Circus! children, parents, and grandparents will step right up to enjoy circus related crafts, a fun photo booth, a strong man challenge, a kid-friendly tightrope, a visit to the fortune teller, popcorn snack, and more. This Family Day event is free of charge and no reservations are required.
Museum Day Live! represents Smithsonian’s commitment to make learning and the spread of knowledge accessible to everyone, giving museums across all 50 states the opportunity to emulate the admission policy of the Smithsonian museums in Washington, D.C. Last year’s event drew more than 400,000 participants to museums across the country.
“Museum admission can often be a hurdle to a family seeking educational and unique experiences outside a school setting,” said Museum on Main’s Education Director Jennifer Amiel. “We hope free events such as this one will encourage the community to explore and enjoy the cultural resources in the area.”
