THIS WEEK IS THE LAST WEEK TO ENJOY FREE ADMISSION TO THE ST. ALBANS MUSEUM!!
The St. Albans Museum is open Wednesday and Friday 11-4 and Saturday 10-2. Handy Cars has provided the wildly generous FREE ADMISSION in 2022. (Huge thanks to Handy Cars for that!)
The money you’ve saved you could spend on the Museum’s store. They have t-shirts, glassware, BOOKS and postcards to name a few things. And those postcards are HIGH QUALITY! They’re a bargain, too, at only 25 cents each!!
When you visit this week, (YOU’RE GOING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE FREE ADMISSION, RIGHT???), make sure to tell them Traveling for History sent you! It’ll be fun to hear how many of my viewers took advantage of this great opportunity!
From their website:
“The Saint Albans Historical Society was founded in 1966 by a committee of area leaders and volunteers who were interested in preserving and sharing our community heritage. Early meetings featured lectures and slide presentations in member’s homes. The Franklin County Museum (later the St. Albans Historical Society & Museum, and now simply the Saint Albans Museum) opened in 1971 in the former Church Street Academy building. Over the years, our non-profit organization has developed into an award-winning museum, with seasonal exhibits and year-round educational and public programming. The Saint Albans Museum celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2016.
Our mission is to collect and preserve historical and cultural material relevant to our community, and to display and interpret selected material from the collections for the education and enjoyment of the public.
SAM is currently open for the 2022 season! We are open Wednesday and Friday from 11 AM – 4 PM and Saturday 10 AM – 2 PM. Closures due to weather will be announced on our Facebook page.
We are also reflecting/responding to the Black Lives Matter movement with a recommitment to diversity and inclusion in our exhibitions, publications, and research… As part of these initiatives, we recently launched our newest traveling exhibit, Untold Stories, Unheard Voices…”-https://www.stamuseum.org/
