Cultural Programming for People with Memory Loss
Join us for a celebration of our favorite food traditions with an Ian’s Pizza Party! Staff from Ian’s Pizza will teach us to stretch and toss pizza dough like a pro. Afterwards, we’ll get to enjoy a slice (or two!) while sharing stories of our favorite foods to create and enjoy.
SPARK! is a free program for people experiencing early to mid-stage memory loss and their care partners. SPARK! programs feature interactive exhibit experiences in a welcoming environment with specially trained museum staff and volunteers. Participants are engaged in lively discussions, object handling, and other multi-sensory activities.
Advance registration is required for SPARK! programs. Please see panel on right for details on how to sign up for this month's program.
For Facilities/Large Groups
Because of size limitations in our exhibit spaces, the museum may need to schedule a special SPARK! session for you on a different date. Please call 608-261-9359 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
