Egg Roll

Monday, April 21, 2014
9:30 am – 5:30 pm

Visitors get things rolling on The Magic House's front lawn for the Museum's annual Egg Roll. In the great tradition of the White House, The Magic House, with its own replica Oval Office located in the Museum's Star-Spangled Center, is inviting children 12 and under to roll up their sleeves and participate in an egg-citing race as they use large spoons to roll their eggs across the finish line. Eggs-tra activities for the event include creating "Medals of Eggsellence", spring-inspired art projects in the Art Studio and the opportunity to meet a very special guest — the Easter Bunny! Families are welcome to bring their own cameras to capture the experience. All egg-tivities are free with Museum admission and no reservations are required!
