Free Fun Friday at the Emily Dickinson Museum
Limited Capacity seats available

Join us for Free Fun Friday at the Emily Dickinson Museum on Friday, August 23! Sponsored by the Highland Street Foundation, this series allows free entry to museums goers at many museums across Massachusetts. Visit the Emily Dickinson Museum for free admission to the Homestead, where Emily Dickinson wrote nearly all of her poetry, and her brother’s home, the Evergreens. 
On Free Fun Friday you can enjoy self-guided tours of the Homestead and The Evergreens with guides on hand to answer questions. A scavenger hunt through the houses invites you to look closely at the historic furnishings used by the Dickinson family. On the Museum grounds, visit the craft tent for fun for all ages. Explore the “Landscape of Memory” with the EDM’s self-guided audio tour. Pollinator Bingo and a garden scavenger hunt will also be available! The day will also include a reading and signing by author Krysyna Poray Goddu. Her newly released Dickinson biography for middle-grade readers, Becoming Emily, will be a hit with kids!
On Free Fun Friday, the Emily Dickinson Museum is open from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Friday August 23, 2019 10:00am - 5:00pm
