Old Fashioned Activities Draw Families to Stuhr Museum


Families got to slow down a bit Sunday at Stuhr Museum's Afternoon with Tom and Huck event.

Fishing, games, fence painting and a watermelon seed spitting contest were all on the agenda.

Museum staff said kids have no problem unplugging for the event.

"Kids have a lot of fun doing these old fashioned games. It's amazing how caught up they get in these extremely active games. It's really fun to watch," said Kay Cynova, interpretive resources director for Stuhr.

"Anybody can come and fish and it's catch and release. Today we've released more turtles than fish," said Tom Oshlo, Stuhr facilities manager.

Museum officials estimate Sunday’s crowd was better than last year’s.
