A night at the museum…for toys

Event will be shared on social media

Special guests will be spending “A Night at The Museum.” Later this month, bears, dinosaurs and dolls will run amok in their very own sleepover party at Touchstones Nelson Museum.

Children are invited to bring their most adventurous doll or stuffed friend to Touchstones Nelson Museum on Tuesday, July 24 between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Dolls and stuffies will take part in a sleepover party that night at Touchstones, which will of course, be fully documented and shared on social media for all to enjoy.

“Bears and dolls are typically quite well-behaved in public spaces, despite their reputation as being party animals,” says Program and Volunteer Coordinator Stephenie Campbell. “We know they will be respectful of all of the art and history contained in our beautiful building. We promise all toys will be well-supervised and have a reasonable bedtime.”

Toy guests will visit the galleries, archives and museum, explore hidden spaces, and have historic adventures. Children will return Wednesday, July 25 at 11 a.m. to pick up their tired toys and participate in their own short tour and craft project before heading home. The cost for one child and one stuffy or doll is just $3, which includes tour and craft activity.

“This is a fun way for not only the dolls and bears but also their children to explore the museum in a whole new way,” says Campbell. “We hope this will be an experience they will never forget!”

We look forward to creating adventures for all at the museum.

Touchstones Nelson is located at 502 Vernon St. in downtown Nelson, BC. For more information, please visit our website: www.touchstonesnelson.ca, or contact 250-352-9813, programming@touchstonesnelson.ca
