The Museum of York County cordially invites you to join Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl for a summer of interactive fun 


ROCK HILL, SC - This summer kids of all ages can explore engaging playscapes at the Museum of York County while learning how to be good stewards of the land.  “Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl: Home Sweet Home” is a new hands-on exhibit developed in collaboration with the U.S. Forest Service.  The exhibit’s indoor nature-themed setting will spark full-throttle play and imaginary adventures. Smokey Bear, Woodsy Owl and their forest friends will share important messages that encourage families to spend time together outdoors.  The “Home Sweet Home” exhibit, along with the museum’s innovative programs and fun activities, highlights the importance of protecting forest ecosystems and ways to reduce, reuse and recycle valuable resources.


“Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl: Home Sweet Home” will premiere at the Museum of York County with “Home Sweet Home Family Day.” Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl will be on site and available for hugs and photo opportunities. Family Day will feature special programs and activities.  For an additional small fee and weather permitting, opening day activities will include outdoor mining for genuine gemstones with Dirt Dauber Deb.


“Smokey Bear & Woodsy Owl: Home Sweet Home” will open on June 3 with Family Day from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and will continue on Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. till September 16, 2017.


General admission rates apply.
