October Museum "Make & Take: Day of the Dead Masks"

Visit the Hands-On Gallery at the Museum of Alabama this month to learn about the Hispanic holiday Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, and make your own mask to take home. It is said that during Dia de los Muertos, spirits of the dead come back to visit the living. While the holiday’s observations include spending time in cemeteries, making shrines to the dead, and displaying skeletons and skulls, the occasion is joyful, instead of sad or scary. Museum Make & Take activities are for the young and young at heart and are always free! The Hands-On Gallery is open Monday through Saturday.
