Spring break at the Museum

Come and play at the Museum!

From March 3 to 11, 2018, the Museum offers you a program of family and fun activities, both in the fresh air and inside. Like what winter on St. Helen's Island is synonymous with pleasure!

The Stewart Museum will b open every day of the week including March 5 and 6.
