GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Registration for Stuhr Museum’s Summer Adventures is now officially open to everyone.

As it does each year, and for most events, registration first opened to museum members before opening to the general public on Saturday, March 20. The classes take place during the months of June and July and this year there are over 60 programs being offered.

“I think that they’re just really good opportunities for the kids to learn things that they aren’t going to necessarily be able to learn just anywhere,” Director of Education Karen Buettner said.

Stuhr added some new adventures this year such as “Candle Creations” and “The Circus comes to Railroad Town” while still keeping some of the yearly favorites. The blacksmith and tinsmith classes, cooking and sewing classes and fishing fundamentals.

Day, time, length and cost of the classes all vary. To register and find the full breakdown of information on a class you may be interested in you can visit Stuhr’s website.

This is the second year Stuhr has held its Summer Adventures during the pandemic. The museum went ahead with a scaled-back version of the classes last summer and this summer will offer slightly more spaces to people interested in participating.

This year is special for the museum and foundation because the foundation’s Alumni Scholarship is going to 60 kids in Grand Island. The scholarship offers free tuition and transportation to a class. It’s the first year of the scholarship.

Registration for Summer Adventures closes a week or two before the classes begin.
