  • Screen a film in which aspects of American culture such as travel / environment / education / social justice play a key role
  • Host a crafts booth that allows guests to create a piece using local materials
  • Create a scavenger hunt of pieces in your collection that showcases the American Experience
  • Host a nature or historical walk among your organization's grounds
