Why We Serve Tea: The Museum offers Afternoon Tea to the public on about 8 weekends over the course of the year. Often they are paired with holidays like Valentine's Day or Mother's Day and of course our very popular Holiday Teas in December. While fun for our guests, the teas themselves serve a very important function for us. They are one of our most important fundraisers we do each year. They provide the funds for the Museum needs to be able to stay open 6 days a week, display rotating exhibits of our extensive collections, and most importantly, provide educational opportunities for young and old alike. By attending a tea or one of our other events throughout the year, YOU are supporting our mission and ensuring that the Museum will be here to engage and delight many generations to come!
