There's nothing that says "summer" more than a Sunday afternoon at the "old fishing hole". Stuhr Museum aims to recreate this atmosphere, and have some old fashioned fun during our "Sunday Afternoon With Tom & Huck" fishing event on Sunday, June 26 from Noon - 4 p.m.
This laid back event, loosely based on the "Adventures of Tom & Huck" by Mark Twain, features a fun afternoon of fishing and activity. Fishing in the Hornady Family Arbor begins at noon and runs through 4 p.m. Visitors are encouraged to bring their fishing poles, and the museum will provide the lively bait for the literally hundreds of fish in the arbor’s pond. A limited number of loaner poles will be available on a first come, first serve basis and small prizes will be awarded to anyone who hooks a fish.
Adventurous anglers are also welcome to take part in other “Tom and Huck” themed activities, including “white washing” a fence, watermelon seed spitting and more. This slice of Americana also includes games and concessions. While at the museum, see our summer exhibit "Tracks Through Hall County" and see what's going on in our 1890s Railroad Town.
Admission is $10 for adults and $8 for children age 6-12. Those 5 and under are admitted free. Stuhr Museum and Hastings Museum members are admitted free. For more information, contact the museum at (308) 385-5316 or log onto www.stuhrmuseum.org.
