Field Day at the Neill-Cochran House Museum
July 11, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Museums don’t always have to be hands-off! One Sunday of the month, the Neill-Cochran House Museum opens its doors to feature hands-on activities, scavenger hunts, self-paced tours, and space to picnic in the shade.
This Sunday Funday let your fun fly free with our Field Day at the NCHM. We are breaking out all our favorites for this Sunday Funday. We will bring out all your favorite lawn games including badminton, lawn bowling, ring toss, and corn hole. To cool off after all that fun, we will be making homemade lemonade and ice cream. We will also have “cool” craft table where you can make your own snowman that will never melt. So this Sunday Funday come out for all the fun.
After having fun in the sun, come inside and check out The Struggle and the Glory: The American Experience, and maybe take a piece of the exhibit home.
This event will take place outdoors with social distancing. For the safety of all visitors and staff, we ask that everyone wear a mask at all times while on our site. This activity is free with museum admission and appropriate for all ages (adults included!), but children younger than 8 will likely need the help of an older child or an adult. This is a drop-in event; it is not necessary to arrive at 1:00pm nor stay until 4:00pm to enjoy the activity. Because this workshop involves paints and markers, we recommend wearing clothing that won’t mind a few stains and blotches.
About the Neill-Cochran House Museum
The Neill-Cochran House Museum is an independent nonprofit that preserves and reflects the experience of some of Austin’s earliest residents. Built in 1855, the house and the collections it displays shed light on the local, individual, and political history of our always-growing city. Today, the museum features rotating exhibits, a speaker series called “Modern Times,” and free monthly events for the entire family. The house and museum are the 9th and 10th oldest structures still standing in Austin.
