FAM Kat Welcome Party
July 23, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Fredericksburg Area Museum (FAM) is pleased to announce the arrival of FAM Kat, the museum’s new family mascot. FAM Kat, created from a tin-windup toy cat that is in the museum’s collection, is excited to come out of the collection and introduce kids and their families to Fredericksburg’s fun history, art, and culture! FAM Kat’s image will be in all future family programming at the museum. Families might have already spotted FAM Kat at the Sounds of Summer concert kid’s craft table. If you see Kat, you know the program was created with children and their families in mind! The FAM invites everyone to the FAM Kat Welcome Party on Saturday, July 23th from 10am – 12pm. Families will be able to color their own FAM Kat and be the first to try FAM’s Family Explorer Pack, a new gallery game. The Family Explorer Pack includes a capsule with dice, a magnifying glass, and a list of challenges. This interactive game will allow families to explore FAM’s galleries. At the roll of the dice, families will go on an adventure into Fredericksburg’s past and present. FAM Kat’s welcome party is FREE and open to all ages. The Family Explorer Pack is an on-going activity and is available to borrow with museum admission. General admission (over 10) is $5. All members and children under 10 are FREE. FAM is free for all on Monday.
