Sankofa: Black Heritage Festival at Indiana State Museum

indianastatemuseum_02I always want my daughters – the Princess Youngest {4} and the Princess Eldest {10} to be learning.  We ask a lot of questions in our house.  We research the answers.  We actually *enjoy* watching documentaries as a family {have you seen PBS’ The Abolitionists?  WOW!}.  History, math, science, literature, theology, we tackle it all.  I love fewer things more than exposing my girls the amazing world around them.  But of course, being the Queen of Free, rarely am I going to pay full price to do so.

Indianapolis’ diverse learning experiences are very affordable and filled with opportunities to widen our entire family’s perspective.  From festivals to museums, there’s nearly always a coupon, a free admission day, or a deal to be found allowing us to increase our knowledge without decreasing our checking account.  Case in point, check out the Indiana State Museum’s Sankofa Black Heritage Fesitval.  It’s a free event this Saturday, February 9 from 10 am – 3 pm.

All day long, you and your family will have opportunities to both learn and have fun {which is essential in any and every learning experience}.  Music! Dance! Exhibits! Food {nom nom nom}!  Games! Arts & crafts! Storytelling! and even a film screening!  There’s a jam packed schedule of all of the fun here.  I’m sure there’s something to appeal to every single member of your family.
