Beginning July 15, 2016  families will be able to enjoy Glanmore’s new Museum Activity Pack program.  Borrow a Museum Activity Pack and embark on an unique adventure throughout the historic house. The Activity Packs are suitable for children ages 5-12 and are meant to help parents and caregivers slow down and have a meaningful experience with their children while exploring Glanmore together. Two themes are available free with museum admission and on a first-come-first-served basis.   New Museum Activity Pack
Artifact Hunt
The Artifact Hunt worksheet is always available at our front reception desk.  The worksheet will challenge children and adults alike to search through room displays for specific artifacts.  Once the worksheet is completed and all objects are found, bring it back to the front desk and receive a small reward!
Glanmore National Historic Site is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10 am to 4:30 pm.  For more information call 13-962-2329.
