Where are we going today?
There is always so much history in a town, but how much do you really know about it all? That is where places like the Chandler Museum comes into play!
The Chandler Museum is all about getting people together, to learn about the history and community of Chandler. They can share stories, and step back in time to some of the exhibits that you can find in the village.
The McCullough-Price House is a great place to start your experience. There are exhibits, and the museum itself is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, so that's an experience in itself!
Then there is the Tumbleweed Ranch, which explore the agriculture of the East Valley. Here, you can see a real 1917 home, as well as a historic grocery store, and even farm equipment. It's a great way for kids to actually feel and experience what it would have been like to live a century ago.
Chandler Museum also has some pretty fun programs and events, some just for kids! The C-Town Suitcase Club lets kids travel through time and explore objects. Perfect for those aged 3 to 5 years, these occur the 3rd Tuesday of the month between September and May.
Then, there is Science Saturday, perfect for the entire family! Here you can try out science experiments on the 2nd Saturday of the month, between October and May. A great way to have fun AND learn with the family!
