June 13  - Family Day @ Smith-McDowell House


$5 admission for all guests!

To celebrate our new exhibition highlighting American Naturalist William Bartram's exploration of Western NC, we've reduced our general admission rate on this date and invite all families to experience the special kid-friendly activities throughout the house. 
Explore leaves, birds, animal tracks and more. Make a take-home craft using leaf, insect, and flower rubbings. 

Photos selected from participants in our Photography Workshop will be displayed and visitors may vote for their favorites. Entries were selected in categories of 3rd Grade, 4th Grade and 5th Grade. These young artists will have some amazing work to share.

Also new at the museum will be a hands-on activity in each of our period rooms. Smell and identify cooking spices, stamp a wallpaper strip, look through a stereopticon and much more!
