Heard Offers Free Summer Sundays In July

From an extravaganza of hands-on activities and story reading to cool treats, Summer Sundays at the Heard Museum gives kids and families a cool and creative way to spend July Sundays.

What’s better, mom and dad or grandpa and grandma can explore the Heard Museum and enjoy the activities for free as well, thanks to support from Target.

At Free Summer Sundays in July at the Heard Museum, there’s something for everyone! Each Sunday from July 1-29, visitors can enjoy kids’ hands-on activities with a different theme each week, cool off with ice cream thanks to Cisco (first-come, first-served; limited to supply on hand) and explore the museum by participating in a “scavenger hunt.” The Courtyard Café will offer special kids’ and family lunches.

On selected Sundays, a Native storyteller will entertain all with tribal lore and stories. Visit heard.org/events/summersundays.html for up-to-date information on day/time.

Also, stop into Books & More, our boutique bookstore and souvenir shop, during Summer Sundays and receive a coupon good for 10% off one children’s book!

Kids can enjoy several hands-on activities in addition to the dozens of interactive or make-and-take activities in two of the museum’s galleries: Every Picture Tells a Story and We Are! Arizona’s First People. They can also participate in a different “scavenger hunt” in the museum each week.

Free Sundays take place July 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29, 2012, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
