Attention Parents! The Allen Memorial Art Museum and the Oberlin Heritage Center are teaming up to offer a summer camp for area teenagers that goes “behind the scenes” to find out about the inner-working of museums and careers in art and history.
"A Week at the Museum" will be offered June 25 – 29, 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Campers will tour the world-class Allen Memorial Art Museum, highly-regarded Oberlin Heritage Center, and the one-of-a-kind Frank Lloyd Wright-designed house in Oberlin as they learn what it takes to make a museum come to life. This camp is perfect for youth wanting to learn more about museums and careers in art and history.
