History comes alive during Tidbit Tuesdays and Saturdays at the Museum. Our Curator of Education, Shawna Michelena, combines local history and culture with fun hands on activities for children ages 4-10. In the past we have explore the coal mines of Sheridan County, America’s Armed Services, and the old Sheridan Zoo, among other topics.
Tidbit Tuesdays and Saturdays are a monthly program throughout the year. During the summer months (June, July, and August) Tidbits are every other Tuesday. The rest of the year Tidbits are held monthly on Saturdays. All of the Tidbit Programs are free. Tidbit Tuesdays and Saturdays are held at the Museum unless otherwise noted. A parent, grandparent or guardian is asked to accompany program participants.
