Marvelous Marble Day

February 19, 2023
10:00 am – 2:00 pm

 

Museum-wide We're celebrating glass "in the round," and exploring the Need for Speed this Marble Day!

The day’s festivities will begin with a 10am presentation joined by National Marble Tournament Representative and Champion Doug Watson, for an update on what’s going on in the national Marble Community. Plus, stick around for a chance to meet the reigning Marble King and Queen. Then, find out how marbles are even more fun when they are in motion! Our Education Lab will be transformed into a Marble Run Maker Space and our 35 Centuries of Glass Gallery will be home to a collection of marble target games and lessons on how to shoot marbles.

Join us at 11am for an “In the Round” Tour: Need for Speed Edition—our Museum Guides will introduce you to round glass and the role that it plays in our collection.

Space is limited, please reserve your space upon check in, tour will depart from our Admissions Lobby.
