We invite the public to join us for Coastal Heritage Society’s 2020 “Night at the Museum” event on Saturday, January 25th at Savannah History Museum, 303 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
The annual event takes visitors through night guard training and then on a behind-the-scenes tour of the museum. Guests will be able to interact with historic characters from Savannah History Museum’s exhibits as they appear to magically come to life. This year’s characters include: Casimir Pulaski, Alida Harper-Fowlkes, Susie King Taylor, and many more!
"We are very excited this year to be highlighting Alida Harper-Fowlkes, a lesser known but hugely influential Savannah preservationist and former owner of our newest historic site, Harper-Fowlkes House,” said Emily Beck, Director of Interpretation for Coastal Heritage Society. “Her work in preservation was ahead of its time, and she was responsible for saving many, many properties here in the city. We will also be featuring African American history this year with living exhibits depicting Susie King Taylor and members of the Gullah Geechee community.”
The event consists of a 90-minute interactive program in the museum. Guests will have the option to choose from two time slots for the program: 5 pm to 6:30 pm or 6:30 to 8 pm. Event participants will also have two opportunities to view the film “Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb” at 3 pm and 8 pm. The 98-minute film screening is optional and seating is first come, first served.
Tickets are $12 per person for guests ages 18 months and older. CHS members will receive a discounted ticket rate of $10. Pre-registration for the event is required and tickets for each time slot can be purchased at: http://bit.ly/NATM2020
