    Helmutt the Dog

    Come to the museum and I’ll take you on a tour of the new exhibition, Knights! Look for me on the walls and in the exhibition. I can tell you what to look for--there’s lots of fun stuff for kids! There’s a tapestry you can touch, a gauntlet—an armored glove—you can try on, and magnifying glasses to look up close. There are also lots of iPads so you can learn fun stuff about suits of armor, helmutts—oops, I mean helmets—and paintings.

    You can also visit me in my house, Helmutt’s House, right in the middle of the exhibition, and check out my Art Cart. Learn all about Knights, Ladies, King Arthur, and more. Sit on bean bags and read, color pictures of me, try on costumes and armor, and play games.

    Come visit the Museum for these great events! All are Free with Museum Admission!
