What is there to do?

Have you ever heard of the Stanley family? Well, if you haven't, you might want to keep reading because they were a pretty amazing family!

The Stanley Museum is a great chance for kids and the family to learn about the genius of this particular American family. You see, if you've ever heard of the "Stanley Steamer" automobile, you have Francis Edgar Stanley to thank for it. It was actually manufactured by him and his twin brother Freelan Oscar Stanley. 

The Stanley Dry Plate was also created by these two very smart brothers, and a violin making business was also crated by Freelan, and his nephew.

If that wasn't enough, the twins sister AND her daughter were exceptional and very important photographers and painters, capturing rural turn of the century American life.

Pretty amazing!

So, with a visit to The Stanley Museum, you can learn all about this fascianting and historically important family through the collections. Within these collections you can learn about all facets of the Stanley family history through memorabilia and displays.

You can even see examples of the Stanley steam cars dating back as far as 1905! History really will come to life as you can face to face with the artistic talents of this exceptional family.

If there was ever a museum to inspire kids into being anyone they want, and achieving anything they want, The Stanley Museum can certainly be that place. It's filled with achievements many wouldn't have thought possible, and kids can enjoy a day of learning, inspiration, and intrigue.

So kids - what will you set out to achieve after your day out at this great museum? We believe in you!
