Celebrate the Winter Solstice by participating in our “Archon for a Day” event!

Celebrate the Winter Solstice as a Park Archon!

On December 21, from 12:00-5:00 p.m., The Park Museum’s Yearn to Learn programme will sponsor an event for young Animals called “Archon for a Day.”

To participate, young Animals’ names  will be entered into an Archon lottery. After the selection process has concluded, the young Animals will be sworn in and advised of their responsibilities. For the rest of the day, these “Archons” will make decisions about The Park’s future by attending meetings, solving problems, and consulting with their parents and other adult Animals on both serious and fun Park issues.

To participate, bring your parents to The Park Museum between 12:00-5:00 p.m. to sign you up for the experience. Meals and snacks are included, courtesy of the PurrBoy Café.

The Park Museum welcomes Holstein Fashion’s EDAM Collection for a one-day special event

Dog in tophatBurro in winter clothingPenguin in dressThe Board of Governors of The Park Museum is pleased to announce a one-day special event in association with Holstein Fashion and Designs by Holstein.

On Friday, June 28, The Park Museum will once again exhibit the brilliant Creations from the EDAM Collection by Holstein Fashion.

History of Creations from the EDAM Collection.
The designs of the EDAM Collection were created exclusively for The Park’s Enforced Domestication Awareness Month in 2016. The purpose of the collection was to
shine a light on the plight of those who experience enforced domestication.

Dorika Pumi, head curator of The Park Museum’s art gallery, worked closely with Holstein Fashion and Designs by Holstein to bring Creations from the EDAM Collection to the museum in August 2016. A unique exhibition and the first of its kind at the museum, the 2016 exhibition showcased the creations in a unique context. The creations were presented with written commentary and experts in the field of enforced domestication, extinction anxiety, and interspecial relations conducted seminars and Q & A sessions during the course of the exhibition.

Creations from the EDAM Collection will open at 7:00 a.m. on June 28, 2019 and close at 11:00 p.m. Admission is free of charge.
