The Richmond Museum of History is inviting the community to a Family Free Day on Saturday, Aug. 18.
The museum at 400 Nevin Ave. will be open from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Along with the free visit, the museum is inviting guests to provide input on plans to renovate the Native American Gallery in the permanent exhibit. The museum is working with an a team of Native American advisors as well as exhibit designers at Scientific Art Studio on the new exhibit. In June, we reported about the museum receiving a grant for this project.
In a blog on its website, the museum said the exhibit envisions “murals of the natural landscape that immerses the visitor in the natural world prior to industrial development,” along with several interactive stations that teach about the Chochenyo language, basket weaving and the Native American diet.

Or, just stop by on Saturday to view the plans for yourself.
