Doak House Museum holds programs for families

December 4, 2019   |   9:30 am @ Doak House Museum

The Doak House Museumwill hold enjoyable storytelling and gingerbread programs for families and homeschool groups Wednesday, Dec. 4.

The multifaceted event consists of four learning stations, with participants spending 20 minutes at each. Children decorate yummy gingerbread cookies they can eat afterward as they learn about food traditions of the 19th Century. They will also make a craft to take home, hear an original story and be treated to a reading of a “Gingerbread Man” book.

The event is offered at two times – 9:30 a.m. or 1 p.m. Reservations are required. Activities are appropriate for child ages 5-9, but older children are welcome.

The cost is $4 per participating child. One chaperone per family group can attend for free, and all other adults pay $2 each.

The museum is located on the campus of Tusculum University. To make reservations or to learn more, contact Dollie Boyd, Tusculum’s director of museums, at 423-636-8554 or
