The Wallace and Area Museum hosts exciting and informative events throughout the season. The museum’s schedule tries to balance the needs of the community with education and the preservation of area history. Some events are fixed each year, such as Francis Grant Day, The Mary Kennedy Tea and the Annual Flea Market and Family Fun Day. Others are scheduled on a monthly or weekly basis, including children’s programming, demonstrations, lectures, openings or special exhibitions.
