McClung Museum will host free family fun days on two consecutive Saturdays—“Treasures From the Vault” from 1 to 4 p.m. April 29 and “Day of Clay” from 1 to 4 p.m. May 6.

“Treasures From the Vault” will bring out a variety of objects from the museum’s stored collection. It will combine objects from different artists, styles, and place of origin. Visitors can participate in activities and make take-home treasures of their own.

All materials will be provided and reservations are not necessary.
