Monthly themes and activities:

  • June: Sometimes it is hard to catch a glimpse of wild animals in the flesh. But they always leave behind some sign that they have been there. Follow animal tracks through Liichokoshkomo’ and make tracks of your own!
  • July: Celebrate our country’s birthday with The Cowboy! Enjoy patriotic crafts, find all the American flags at the Museum and play games for a chance to win prizes.
  • August: Many of the cowboy traditions that you find in the American West had their origins in Mexico. These traditions eventually traveled north into what became the United States. Explore the unique items that these vaqueros wore and make your own sombrero and spurs.
  • September: Commemorate Mexico’s bicentennial by playing a traditional Mexican game, make a mini pinata and make your own Mexican flag while learning about its origins and symbols.

Activities are free with admission for children while supplies last.
