Second Saturdays: St. Martin’s Day Hedgehog Lanterns

November 10, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Come join us for fun German-inspired children’s activities from 1-2pm:

Come by and craft your St. Martin’s Day Lanterns! The nights before and on the night of Nov. 11, children in Germany walk in processions carrying lanterns, which they made in school, and sing Martin songs. Usually, the walk starts at a church and goes to a public square. A man on horseback dressed like St. Martin accompanies the children. When they reach the square, Martin’s bonfire is lit and Martin’s pretzels are distributed

All Children and Students with ID get FREE ENTRY to the museum and the exhibits all day!
