Celebrate New Year’s Eve with Please Touch Museum
Since we can’t be together in person at the Museum on New Year’s Eve, we are creating fun ways to celebrate ringing in 2021 with us from home!
At 7 a.m. on New Year’s Eve, our Countdown from Home video will be live on our website homepage featuring music from Trinidelphia and a special Countdown to 2021 with Squiggles from Hamilton Hall!
Your family can decide what time to celebrate the New Year with your children – play the Countdown from Home video just before noon, at bedtime, or anytime in between! The video has a 20 minute run time, so plan accordingly!
To prepare for the celebration, we’re sharing fun party food recipes you can prepare in advance thanks to Bassetts Ice Cream and Vetri Community Kitchen and our Museum Learning team has created make-at-home instrument instructions so your children can play along with the band on New Year’s Eve. Scroll down to see all of the great activities we have developed to make your New Year’s Eve special.
We are grateful for the sponsors who made the Countdown from Home celebration possible:
