Celebrate Bastille Day! During this month’s program, families will learn about the Marquis De Lafayette’s visit to Fredericksburg and our French Sister City, Frejus. Using inspiration from FAM’s exhibit “These Old Walls: A Town and Its Stories,” participants will make their own Lafayette souvenir and French flag to take home.

Second Saturdays at the Museum is a regularly scheduled family program that includes hands-on activities, make-and-take crafts, and an opportunity to explore the Museum’s exhibits. The program is held on the second Saturday of each month from 11 AM – 12 PM and encourages visitors to discover something new within the FAM’s collection and explore a new piece of Fredericksburg’s history. Second Saturdays is a FREE program and registration is not required but appreciated. For additional information on this program, please contact Theresa Cramer, [email protected], or 540-371-3037, ext. 138.
