Museum Hosts Children’s Activity Days This Summer

The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum will be hosting a number of Children’s Activity Days throughout June and July. Each of these special days will start at 10 am and conclude at 3 pm. Campers will be fully immersed in the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum and its history through hands-on activities, presentations, and interaction with exhibits.

“This is a project that volunteers and staff have been working on for about a year,” said Kendra Klink, chief operating officer of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum. “We have developed programs and activities with the help of the Education Committee and the expertise of our staff. This series of activity days promises to be exciting for the students, volunteers, and staff – we are so excited!”

Children’s Activity Days are geared toward girls and boys 10 – 12 years old. There are three days in a series, and each series will be offered twice during the summer. Children can attend one, two, three, or all of the days. The dates are Tuesdays June 7, June 14, and June 21 and Wednesdays July 13, July 20, and July 27. The price is $50 per student per day. This not only includes lunch but also includes something each day that campers will take home to share with family and friends.

“The children will experience interesting and fun educational activities that will expand their skills and knowledge,” said Jon Bill, curator at the Museum.

“Boys and Girls will have the opportunity to learn about the Auburn Automobile Company, the automotive history of the area, art deco, early automobile racing, how a car works, and so much more,” continued Klink. “Children who complete a series of three Activity Days will be awarded a year-long individual membership to the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum in his or her name!”
