Cumberland Heritage Village Museum: Hop Into Spring
April 8 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Spring has arrived, the Easter Bunny has been spotted at the museum, and we’re hosting a day of fun, family activities inspired by the season! Say hi to our furry and feathered visitors from the Heritage Livestock Club of Eastern Ontario. See how wool is transformed into thread with the Ottawa Valley Weavers and Spinners Guild. Help us craft some beautiful flower decorations to prepare the village for Easter, test your skills with the obstacle course, plant your own Morning Glory seeds, spot Farmer Joe’s lost lambs in a scavenger hunt, and more! *Advance registration is strongly encouraged. Walk-ins will only be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis, if capacity allows.
Saturday, April 8 from 10 am to 4 pm.
Cost: $25 per group (six people max per group; see “how to register” below).
Family-friendly (best suited for families with kids ages 10 and under).
