Season Opening Weekend
April 7, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 1:00 pm, repeating until April 8, 2018
Celebrate the beginning spring with indoor and outdoor activities at the Florence Griswold Museum.
In addition to the popular Make-A-Painting activities, where visitors of all ages use the Museum’s supplies to create their own masterpieces, visitors can now enjoy an outdoor Art Cart that guides families to explore the grounds and its connection to the artists who famously painted there.
In addition, seasonal buildings including the Chadwick Studio and the Rafal Landscape Center open for the season. Who knows!? With any luck, you’ll find some pops of color starting in the garden. Activities are included with admission and children 12 and under are always free.
Special appearances by princesses Moana and Ariel at 11:30am, 12:30pm, 1:30pm, and 2:30pm. Between singing with the princesses, kids and parents enjoy an island-themed crafting day.
