Programs At Hanford Mills Museum

Exploration Days

We’ll see you at the Mill for Exploration Days throughout the season. Each Exploration Day is built around a particular topic and features engaging activities, demonstrations by presenters with traditional skills, and other special programming. Activities, mill tours, and chances to tour our exhibitions are available throughout the day.

All activities, unless otherwise noted, are included in the cost of admissions. Admission to all Exploration Days will be by donation rather than our usual admission fees.
