Family Fun Day

Museum guests can participate in several free hands-on activities, observe metalsmiths honing their craft, explore our exhibits and browse the Museum Store for adornments, kitchenware and more by artists from around the country.

There’s nothing like watching blacksmiths move steel as easily as clay or watching a foundry crew melt down and pour more than a ton of iron. At the FREE Family Fun Day aspiring metalsmiths of all ages and skill levels can try their hand at various processes. 

​Take time for some fall family photos on the bluff and be sure to stick around for the big Iron Pour. This intricate process begins with iron melted down in a big furnace called a cupola. Children (and adults) will watch in amazement as the glowing orange molten iron is poured into molds, creating solid pieces as it cools.

The event is finished.
