8/6/2019 to 8/13/2019 | Missouri State Museum | Jefferson City, MO
From June 4 through Aug. 13, 2019, the Missouri State Museum is hosting a fun twist on summer programming. "Tuesdays @ 2" is a series of interactive programs exploring various aspects of Missouri's cultural and natural history specifically focused on age groups 8 to 12 years using more activity-based programming. For similar-themed programming for younger children, please see our regular "Learning @ 11" programs for age groups 4 to 7.
The broad theme for this summer's programs is "communication." The series will explore how people and wildlife communicate--past and present.
Programs will be held at Jefferson Landing State Historic Site, 100 Jefferson Street, Jefferson City
August themes are:
Aug. 6: Hello from the Front Lines! Pigeons, dogs, flags and telephones during World War I
