Mr. Matty to Perform at TN State Museum : Saturday 08/20/2022 10:30AM

From The Tennessee State Museum Website:

As children head back to school in Tennessee this month, the Tennessee State Museum is excited to reveal new activity updates to its Children’s Gallery. It’s less a grand reopening, and more a grand refreshen-ing! 
With a whimsical design by Lucie Rice inspired by Tennessee’s many state symbols, the Children’s Gallery encourages children of all ages (but especially 2-8) to explore, play, and discover Tennessee’s history and culture in a hands-on way. Take a tour of Tennessee by walking along a giant map of the state, stopping along the way to learn what makes Tennessee unique and extraordinary. Try on period and rock ‘n’ roll costumes in our West Tennessee STAX Records area that pays homage to Memphis’s music history. Discover how Reelfoot Lake was created with our automated earthquake table. Run your own farmers’ market in Middle Tennessee. Play with trains in Chattanooga and explore all the Great Smoky Mountains have to offer in East Tennessee. There’s even an area to trace fossils from the Gray Fossil Site!
The celebration on Saturday, August 20 from 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. will include a performance by children’s entertainer Mr. Matty, a reading of the book V is for Volunteer by author Michael Shoulders and illustrator Bruce Langston, and take-away art kits based on the book and snacks. 
Our updated Children’s Gallery at the Tennessee State Museum proves you’re never too young to learn about Tennessee history!
