Join us as we welcome Mr. Mark Vollmer and Mr. Jim Eaglesmith who bring you an engaging family program, StorySongs, in two parts.

On Saturday, October 9th,  StorySongs: Rediscovering Truckee Meadows Natural History will help you explore Reno/Sparks’ geologic history and how natural features determine our community landscape.

The program for Saturday, October 16th,  StorySongs: Remembering Our Cultural Heritage of the Truckee Meadows will focus on the cultural history of the Truckee Meadows area from prehistoric indigenous populations to present day. Each event includes an interactive slide show, creative writing elements, live music, and egg shakers that the audience will make and take home with them. The whole family is welcome to one or both programs.

General admission to the museum is $5. Seniors are $4. Children 12 years old and under are free.
