Barnetimen (Children’s Hour)
Member Event Community Event Art Performances & Education Calendar
Vesterheim, the national Norwegian-American museum and heritage center, invites all pre-school-aged children and their parents or caregivers to Barnetimen (Children's Hour) this school year. Join Vesterheim Youth Educator Jennifer Kovarik and Decorah ArtHaus Director and Instructor Shannon Dallenbach Durbin on the third Tuesday of each month to explore art and culture.
Barnetimen is free of charge thanks to sponsors David and Brenda Carlson, Keith and Amy Bruening, and Norwegian Mutual Insurance Association.
The program is geared toward 3-5 year olds, but all ages are welcome. No sign-up is necessary—come to one session or all of them. Meet at Vesterheim Museum and explore the museum together, and then create art inspired by the visit. A snack is also provided.
