Free Sundays at the Museum

After more than a year of closing its doors, the Kemerer Museum of Decorative Arts is finally reopening to the public! Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites is pleased to welcome the public back starting with the opening reception for Art at Home on April 8. Beginning April 10, the Kemerer Museum will be open Saturdays and Sundays from 1-4pm. Free Sundays at the Museum will resume April 11. Ticket reservations are strongly encouraged.

Saturdays at Burnside

FREE to attend! Running every Saturday, April-November, visitors will be able to learn more about the barns, buildings, and gardens that have been a part of the Moravian community since 1748. Bring the kids along for fun outdoor activities and crafts each week! Burnside Plantation is also dog-friendly, so bring your furry friends along as well!

Single Sisters Series - For Your Health

You're invited to step into the Single Sisters’ House, the Lehigh Valley’s only historically rooted, bricks and mortar, women’s programming space. This year, the Single Sisters’ Series takes on the theme- “For Your Health,” highlighting different elements of health and safety and connecting to the progressive Moravian approach to healthcare and mutual aid.

Design After Dark - Community Curated

Design After Dark, an adult programming series at the Kemerer Museum of Decorative Arts, launched in April 2019. Focusing on art and design, the inaugural season included a pop-up retro arcade, trivia nights, an art café, exclusive walking tours, and a comedy night. While placed on hold for the 2020 season, Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites is refocusing in 2021 around unique experiences by Lehigh Valley Creatives.
