From toddlers to grandparents, Family Days with the Florence County Museum are sure to offer something for everyone. The FCM is still unable to host in-person programming, but we can’t let January go by without Family Day! Drive through to pick up your FREE Family Day at Home Kit to create along with us. All supplies and written instructions are included with access to online video tutorials. You don’t want to miss January’s Family Day at Home!

Art and Science

Super Slime!

Use basic household supplies in this creative, slimy experiment. Participants will learn about polymers and chemical bonds as they create colorful slime.


Your vision can really play tricks with your mind!  Participants will experience the persistence of vision by creating a simple Thaumatrope.

Simple Circuit Cards

Create a simple circuit to make your card shine! Participants will form a circuit with copper tape and small LED light to make a light-up greeting card.

This program is made possible through a generous donation from Eastern Carolina Community Foundation Blackwell-Ervin Family Fund.
