April 24th, 2017

Hey kids! There’s never been a better time to join the Goulbourn Museum’s Kits’ Club!

In addition to our seasonal newsletter filled with photos from Museum events, fun games and contests you will also receive your very own Membership Card which now allows you to collect Museum Money to spend on rewards at the Museum! Present your card during every visit and .50¢ will be added. It even comes loaded with .50¢ to start!

Mom and dad will love the fact that being a member earns you a discount when you register for any of our workshops like Mansion Mayhem and the Museum’s March Break Craft Camps!

The cost is just $5.00 per child per year to join the club. Adults who buy a $20 Family Membership will receive 4 free Kits’ Club Memberships which can be used for children or grandchildren! Click HERE to download a membership form.

Family Programs and Activities
Goulbourn Museum has a lot of great things for kids – you can sign up for one of our monthly Family Craft Days, visit the Museum to dress up and “shop” for groceries and supplies in our Village Store, deliver mail at the postal wicket, build a log cabin, compare your height to a soldier in the War of 1812 and hear the sounds of a Brown Bess musket. AND every time you visit the Museum we will add .50¢ to your membership card!

What can I buy?
Use your Museum Money right away (one visit = 2 candy sticks!) or save it up for a bigger reward such as these:

  •  2 visits = 1 Village Button
  • 10 visits = 1 Wooden Yo-Yo
  • 14 visits = 1 Jacob’s Ladder (wooden toy)
  • 30 visits = 1 Pocket Watch
