Enjoy a beautiful summer day celebrating dads at GCV&M!

In celebration of fathers everywhere, all dads are FREE ADMISSION to the museum on Sunday, June 17! (No ID required.)

Visit the farm and its animals, explore an octagon-shaped house, stop by the potter and blacksmith, see cooking demonstrations, and even visit a real 19th-century working brewery (and try some of our ales or hard cider).

2019 activities to come - take a look at last year's fun!

  • Take in a vintage base ball double-header at Silver Base Ball Park, played by 1868 rules before the introduction of gloves and other protective equipment.  Games are at 11:00am and 1:00pm.
  • Try your hand at splitting rails.
  • Join Professor Lowe as he demonstrates the fascinating, bang-up chemical process that generated hydrogen during the Civil War. The highly flammable, lighter-than-air gas floated Union spies above Confederate lines in gas-filled balloons. (11:30am)
  • Taste ginger beer or pickled asparagus.
  • Load up on steak-and-ale pies at the Confectionery.
  • Learn all about 19th-century facial hair fashions and even get some tips on styling your ‘stache. You might even join in an 1864 ditty about the moustache. (1:00pm)
  • And if you don’t have a mustache, you can make your own.
  • Discover how the fathers that live in in the forest apply unique parenting styles. Meet at the nature center. (1:30pm)
  • Explore the gallery's new exhibits.

General admission prices apply for all other visitors.
