Our flyer advertising our "Growing Up in Edina: A Show and Tell Exhibit" invites the public to "bring your friends, bring your family" and I've enjoyed seeing people do just that.
The Lonsbury family visited the museum last week and let us take their photo at the old Wooddale School auditorium door. Siblings John, Ann and (far right) Mark accompanied their mother Joan (in doorway) and strolled down memory lane together.
We invite you to bring the whole family in on the Saturday following Thanksgiving. We'll be closed on Thursday for the holiday, but stop in before or after your holiday shopping on Saturday morning. The museum will be open from 10 a.m. to noon.
I especially get a kick out of neighborhood pals that have come in. Decades may have passed since they rode their bikes together or sat in an Edina classroom, but they have the greatest time as they remember relive their childhood together.
Admission during regular hours is free. If you can't come in on a Thursday or Saturday, we will open the museum by special appointment for a small fee ($5 per person, $25 minimum per group). Call 612-928-4577 at least two weeks in advance to arrange a showing.
