Family Game Night Returns to Stuhr Museum

GRAND ISLAND, STUHR MUSEUM – Stuhr Museum is proud to bring back the popular “Family Game Night” in a slightly different venue for 2014. The event will take place on Friday, March 7th in the Reynolds Building at Stuhr Museum and runs from 6-9 p.m.

Family Game Night combines history with old-fashioned play time as visitors are invited to try any of more than two dozen period games. From cards to marbles, from games of skill to games of chance, from the classic to games you might have never heard of to the newest board games you’ve been hearing about, this is a chance to get out of the house and experience history in a fun and hands-on way. This event also features a number of modern board games that have recently grown in popularity, which are fun to play and compare with games from over 120 years ago.

No matter the age or the skill level, there will be games to challenge and entertain everyone. Stuhr staff will be on-hand to help play the games and provide insight as to how and why they were popular in a historical context.

Games Include:
•Checkers •Chess •Modern Board Games
