Of all the History Museum’s programs, Learning Lunch affords me the most consistent opportunity to remove myself from a busy work week, and learn something new about the city I call my home….”
This series allows guests to enjoy free presentations on a wide range of historical and cultural topics. Admission to Learning Lunch is free. Bring your lunch and enjoy complimentary beverages.
Each program begins at noon.
For more information about the Learning Lunch programs, contact Jennifer Theeck, Curator of Education at: 251-208-7510 or firstname.lastname@example.org
