DECORAH, Iowa — Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum invites all pre-school-aged children and their parents or caregivers to “Peek into the Past” during Barnetimen (Children's Hour) on March 13 from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. Led by Lea Lovelace from ArtHaus, Barnetimen meets the second Wednesday of each month and is geared toward 3-5 year olds, but all ages are welcome.

“This month we’ll discover what people wore long ago and how clothing was made,” said Lovelace. “Meet at the ArtHaus Studio at 516 W. Water Street first, before visiting the museum to explore clothing traditions by touching and feeling different textile tools and materials,” Lovelace explained. Afterwards, return to the ArtHaus Studio for a fun, hands-on art activity and a delicious snack.

Barnetimen is free of charge, thanks to sponsors Keith and Amy Bruening of Decorah, Bank of the West, and the Depot Outlet.

For information about Barnetimen, please contact Jennifer Kovarik at 563-382-9681 or jkovarik@vesterheim.org, or check vesterheim.org. More information about ArtHaus can be found at www.arthausdecorah.org.
