????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????On Thursday the Cuyahoga Falls Historical Society Museum hosted an impressive group of third graders from Immaculate Heart of Mary School.  When they contacted us we set a special time during the day for them to come and view our exhibits. Prior to their visit they researched the museum on our Facebook page, and our web page. When the day arrived, they came armed with both questions and their iPads.
As the group went through the museum listening to our Curator (Mrs. Metz) talk about the exhibits, they were busy taking tons of pictures of the artifacts with their iPads.  The teachers said that they will go through all their pictures, and talk more about what they learned while in class.  We asked that they share back with us their experiences of their day at the museum.
We are always happy to see groups of school children or scout troops come through and see our treasures. If you have a group that is interested please contact us at 234-817-0132 or at cuyahogafallshistory@gmail.com.
