Giving to Our Latest Initiative:  Building the Eric Sloane Museum’s 3-Season Classroom:

In 2022-23, we are creating a 3-season classroom out of the implement shed of The Eric Sloane Museum.  A generous donor stepped forward with a $5,000 donation towards fully equipping a blacksmith shop, but we need to complete the 3-season classroom before being able to use this gift.  The classroom is important – our ultimate goal is to position The Eric Sloane Museum as a center for teaching and learning traditional crafts and trades, while helping our youngest visitors immerse themselves in engaging S.T.E.A.M. activities.
