Feb. 17--Snow, cold, disrupted routines. Here's wishing winter in East Tennessee would give way to spring.
The McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture offers a way to help cure that cabin fever that your children may still have after these days of snow, ice and generally being out of school and off their normal February routines.
The McClung on the University of Tennessee campus hosts one of its free family fun days 1:30-4:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22.
The event is focused on the museum's current exhibit "Brightly Beaded: North American Indian Glass Beadwork." The afternoon includes educational activities in the museum lobby and the exhibit gallery that relate to the exhibit. Children can make a craft to take home.
All materials are provided, and the program is free. You don't need reservations.
The museum is at 1327 Circle Park Drive on campus. The exhibit of beadwork continues at the McClung through June 1. Regular museum hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, 1-5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free. Campus parking? On weekends, there's free parking on Circle Park Drive.
