The Museum will offer special programs for families In partnership with the Children’s Department at the Appleton Public Library in celebration of this holiday. Day of the Dead is an ancient observance brought to the Fox Valley from Mexico.

The Library will offer extended programming beginning October 14 through November 4, including themed story times and activities. Please visit the www.apl.org for details. One child admitted free with paid adult; Museum members free.
