Story City - Scandinavian Days June 2-4, 2017

The museums will be open extended hours during Scandinavian Days this weekend. Stop by and visit us on Saturday between 1-4 pm or Sunday from 1-2:30 pm. On Sunday at 2:30 we will have a special presentation of “Celebrating the Songs of WWI” with Sylvia Munsen in the Carriage House Museum (619 Grand Avenue). Follow the history of the war through viewing sheet music covers and join in singing some of the tunes such as “Smiles,” “Over There,” Ja-Da,” It’s Long, Long Way to Tipperary” and “For Me and My Gal.” This presentation is in conjunction with a special exhibit on WWI at the Carriage House Museum which opened in April for the centennial of the war. The event is free and open to the public.

We hope to see you this weekend!
