COSHOCTON – Take a journey this summer at the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum during their Imagination Journeys for Preschoolers on Tuesdays from 10 – 10:40 a.m. during the month of July.

“We wanted to introduce kids to the museum at a very young age so they feel comfortable coming back here,” said Patti Malenke, director of the museum. “We don’t want them to think that this is just a sterile place. You can laugh and have fun here.”

The museum has had workshops for preschoolers in the past and they have always been successful. On the first Tuesday of July, 28 children attended the event to take a journey under the sea where they explored a variety of sea life and made a craft depicting an ocean scene.

The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum received a grant from the Kiwanis Club to continue this program for preschoolers in the future. The program is for children ages two through five and registration is greatly appreciated. You can register by calling the museum at 740-622-8710 or email [email protected].

On Tuesday, July 14, kids will be taking a canoe ride. On July 21, they’ll be traveling in a covered wagon, and on July 28, kids can take a magic carpet ride.

Another exciting event coming up at the museum is A Night at the Museum on Friday, Aug. 7 from 7 – 10 p.m. Each room in the museum will feature a living character based on the artifacts of that room. Later, kids can enjoy some popcorn while watching “Night at the Museum”. This is only for ages 5 – 10, and kids are encouraged to wear their pajamas. Reservations are required and can be made by calling or emailing the museum.
