We are excited to announce that Christmas at the Museum will be held on December 10th from 11am to 2pm.  Join us for a great family event – visit with Santa Claus and take pictures; enjoy a Wendy’s chili lunch with all the trimmings and homemade desserts.  Hot chocolate, cider and coffee will round out your meal.  Adults are $5.00 donation with kids 6 and under FREE.  Admission gets you a chance for great door prizes.  We are having a fabulous silent auction, and the highest bidder wins.  There are rumors of elves and Rudolph the Reindeer making an appearance!  The Bent County Art Guild will have their very fun craft corner where families can make special Christmas crafts – all supplies provided.  Entertainment will be the Christmas band consisting of Lynette Wolfe on the bass and Janice Ramey on the piano – a beautiful combination!  The Art Guild will also have their homemade crafts for sale for your Christmas shopping.  The Bent County Historical Society is having their annual membership drive in December, and we appreciate your continued support. 

Call the Museum if you have any questions at 719-456-6066.
