McClung Museum Hosts Free Stroller Tour May 19

 

The McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture will offer a free stroller tour on Monday, May 19. The 10:00-11:00 a.m. event will focus on dinosaurs and fossils.

Parents and caregivers with toddlers or babies are invited to meet in the museum’s lobby before taking a tour in the Geology of Tennessee gallery.

The event is part of a monthly series of free stroller tours that allow parents and caregivers to interact with one another and museum staff without the worry of disturbing other visitors.

The program is free and open to the public, but reservations are necessary and are first come, first served. Online registration is preferred and is available online. Participants also may call the museum at 865-974-2144 to make a reservation.

Next month’s tour is June 16 and will be held in the museum’s Native Peoples gallery. Registration for stroller tours opens one month before the tour.

The McClung Museum is located at 1327 Circle Park Drive. It is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Sundays. Admission is free.

On weekdays, free two-hour museum parking passes for Circle Park Drive are available from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. from the Parking Information Center kiosk at the entrance to Circle Park Drive, located just north of the museum. Additional parking information is available online.
