Story Time on the Porch

Story Time on the Porch 

The MSA Museum Society is delighted to learn that our “Story Time on the Porch” program that the museum ran last summer has been mentioned on the Museums & Storytelling website. The website has been compiled by Shannon Bettles as part of her coursework at the University of Alberta.

Shannon Bettles is the acting museum director/curator of the Agassiz-Harrison Museum.

We are delighted to announce that Story Time on the Porch will be returning for a second year, with the first Story Time session to be held in June.
