2018 Free Sunday Family Programs

Time Capsule Bethlehem: Family Room

Set within our spring exhibit, Time Capsule Bethlehem: Our City Then & Now, our family room is ready to help you and your family create momentos for the future.

Surrounded by family albums, heirlooms and colorful documents, Kids and their families can create their own family tree, make a family album, color in their own Fraktur, or create their own custom time capsule box via guided, rotating in-exhibition activities, offered every Sunday 1PM - 4PM.

Career Corner

Taking place four times a year, this program brings professionals into the museum to present a children’s activity that demonstrates how they use design in their current job.

Presenters this year will be a museum curator, a baker, an architect and a fashion designer.

Dates coming soon!

Museum Storytime

Every Sunday at 1:30 pm, families can stop in to enjoy a reading program.

Volunteer readers will share books that relate to the collections at Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites. The reading will be followed up with a show and tell of interesting pieces from the collection that inspired the book choice for the week.

Once Upon a Treehouse Interactive Play Room

Provide by local company, Once Upon A Treehouse, this ‘kids only’ interactive room provides a place for kids to use their imagination, play dress up, and enjoy hands-on creative play, with beautiful handmade dollhouses!

Free Sundays at the Museum programs are funded with support from the Jones Children Fund.
