Easton Out Loud-Fourth Friday Evening – Free Admission, Dinosaurs, Kids’ Activities, May 26, 2017

Stop by the Sigal Museum during Easton’s Fourth Friday inaugural event on May 26, 2017!

We’re celebrating with free admission to the museum from 4:00-10:00 pm, a dinosaur program for the whole family, and kids’ craft activities. Look for our 19th-century costumed interpreters on the second floor. They’ll be serving lemonade, giving tours of The Cabinet of Curiosities exhibition, and discussing fascinating facts about curiosity cabinets, P.T. Barnum’s museum, and the culture of the time.

Dinosaurs of Easton – 6:00-8:00 pm

Go back in time to the days of the dinosaurs! Join presenter Ed Henning to find out which dinosaurs roamed right here in the Lehigh Valley. Touch a dinosaur egg, see dino skeletons, play a fossil guessing game, and take your own fossil home to start your collection. 

Dino Crafts and Fun – 6:00-8:00 pm: Make a dinosaur diorama to take home.

Admission to the program is FREE. Each child will take home one fossil; additional fossils will be available for sale, or start a mini collection for $12.
