Explore local art & history at a fun, festive day at the museum.

Valentine's Day can strike fear into even the most solid of couples, but lucky for you, we’re here to help!

Our completely unbiased opinion is that museums are incredibly romantic. Example A: Speed Weddings & Vow Renewals at The MAH. But, if you aren't quite at the 15-minute wedding celebration stage of your relationship then come on by for crafts, hearts, and lots of art.
