    All ages welcome!

    The Rockwell is a culturally engaging place to see and experience stores about America through innovative programming and authentic, unplugged play. That’s why we’re pleased to invite families to get crafty on their day off by weaving your own Native American-inspired dream catcher!

    Use an original web pattern with a selection of natural materials to weave in your creativity. Learn how to thread your own design and have fun adding decorative feathers and beads. Drop in any time between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. to try out this art activity.

    The traditional lore of the Native American dream catcher tells us that negative dreams get trapped and tangled in the web, protecting sleeping individuals, then vanish in the light of the morning sun. Positive dreams slip through the center hole and glide down the feathers. The hoop symbolizes strength and unity and the woven web represents the circle of life.

    Kids and Teens Always Free! (17 and under)

    Authentic, unplugged play is right here in your community museum! Try the new NEW “I Spy” Book to explore the galleries, be a detective with our Art Hunts , and get hands-on with art in our Family Exploration Studio. Open Daily, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Local Residents 50% Off
