Blueberry Tea With the Women's Institute - Wednesday, July 28th 2pm-4pm

The local Pemberton Women's Institute is bringing their Blueberry tea to the museum Wednesday July 28th from 2pm to 4pm.  The Strawberry Tea, which has been an annual event at the museum for many years was suspended due to the pandemic.  However with restrictions loosened the W.I. contacted us to see if they could organize a BLUEBERRY TEA event this summer.  We anticipate that this will be a hit with all Strawberry Tea fans and are thrilled to host the event at the museum.  We are grateful to the Women’s Institute for choosing the museum as their venue for this event.  Get Your Dessert Before Dinner.


Pemberton Tales

The Museum is proud to be able to offer programs once again at the museum. We are bringing you a presentation of the Best LOVED stories from the “Pemberton: History of a Settlement” book, read by local residents. Produced and presented online and on site every Tuesday 2-4pm. Due to the recent pandemic there will be NO refreshments served or baked goods.
