April 3- First Friday

The Museum always participate's in Downtown Georgetown's monthly First Friday event. We'll be open until 8 pm (or there abouts) on Friday, April 3. Stop by for exhibits, refreshments, and a visit with Museum staff and volunteers.

Special Guests: Sun City Dulcimers will play music on their mountain dulcimers from 7pm to 8pm.

What's a dulcimer, you ask? A mountain dulcimer, also called an Appalachian dulcimer, is a fretted stringed instrument of the zither family, typically with three or four strings. The mountain dulcimer is native to the Appalachian region of the United States. (For more information visit wikipedia.)

See you Friday!
