Dragon Spotted at Treehouse!

This month is Dragon Month at Treehouse! As a member your family can participate in these programs at no cost or at a discounted member rate.

A New Dragon Lands in Days of Knights Exhibit

Check out the newest resident of Treehouse – our wonderful, friendly Dragon Bench in the Days of the Knights Exhibit Gallery. This dragon is a great place to perch to share a story as a family or snap a photo.

Your child can help us name the new dragon. Just send us an email with your suggestion and our panel of 3 judges will pick their favorite. The winner will receive a dragon basket with plush dragons, a dragon puppet, one of our favorite books about a dragon and a knight and other fun items.

Because we want to give a name to our new dragon quickly, the deadline for suggestions is Monday, February 14. Email them to treehouse@treehousemuseum.org
