On Nov. 27, our indoor exhibit Create.Connect will close temporarily to the public as construction starts on a new permanent feature inside our Welcome Center, the Makesmith Workshop. This new, 500 square-feet space inside Create.Connect will allow visitors to hone their skills while exploring historic making and trades through numerous hands-on activities. Staff will guide visitors through projects and help them acquire new experience with tools and materials. The installation of this workshop will mean the reorganization of some areas of Create.Connect, which will reopen to the public Dec. 2. Makesmith Workshop is set to open Jan. 11 as a permanent exhibit.
