Pay As You Can Children’s Storytimes at the Job Carr Cabin in Tacoma
Here’s more cheap fun to do with the kids in Tacoma this summer!
We’re longtime fans of the Job Carr Cabin Museum, which is a replica of Tacoma’s first permanent non-Native residence. You might have seen this little cabin in Old Town before and not realized it’s a cabin sized museum you can go in!
The inside of the cabin is a very faithful recreation of what life would have been like in an 1800s cabin, and my kids always had a lot of fun learning about old fashioned chores and living.
It’s a tiny museum, a good size for young school aged children, and the volunteers are always so glad to meet them. Plus you can play at the little playground after and enjoy Old Town.
Summer Storytimes are on Fridays from 11am-12 noon through 8/31. Each event includes a story with a take home craft to go with the theme. Storytimes are perfect for children 3-9 and their favorite grownups.
Admission to the museum and all events are “pay as you can!”
The Museum also has some upcoming story times at area libraries as well as some special craft Saturdays if these Friday times don’t work for you. You can get more information about all of them on their Facebook page.
