First Fridays @ The Carle

December 1, 2006
4:00 - 7:00 pm

"...Happy Hour for the whole family." (Amherst Bulletin)
Taking a cue from the Museum's popular Member PJ parties, which have been cited by families as the perfect bedtime transition for little ones, First Fridays @ The Carle invites all visitors to head to the Museum after school/work, grab a quick and casual bite to eat (pizza!) in the Museum's Café, enjoy a Storytime in the Reading Library, drop by the Galleries, take in a short film in the Auditorium, and create a masterpiece in the Art Studio . . . all before bedtime!

Seniors Shopping Night! December 1st during First Fridays @ The Carle. All Seniors receive a 10% DISCOUNT in the Museum Shop (Above and beyond Member discounts)

The program runs from 4:00 to 7:00 pm on the first Friday of each month.
