February 25th and 26th is Free Museum Weekend in Butte County, with more events and activities than anyone could possibly fit into one weekend. All participating museums, galleries, and cultural centers will offer free admission from 10am-4pm all weekend, and not only that, each museum has a new exhibit or extra offering for the weekend.
I’ll be in Oroville, speaking at the Pioneer History Museum on “Alvin Coffey and Slavery in California.” Come meet me at 2:00 p.m. — I’d love to meet you. The museum has a great collection sure to please any history buff.
Before or after you can visit some of the other great history venues in Oroville: the C.F. Lott home, the Chinese Temple, the Butte County Historical Society Museum, or Bolt’s Antique Tool Museum. So many choices!
Nancy- unfortunately, we ( Stansbury Home) didn’t get any notice of this event until a week or so ago (or else flubbed it!). They forgot about us…. We can’t at this time guarantee any hours beyond our regular – tours at 1:00, 2:00, and 3:oo, but will try to expand our coverage. We have been operating with one person as a docent, thus we can’t just open the doors for anyone at any time. Don’t mean to sound put-offish, but that’s our reality. Thanks so much for all that you do! -John
