True Stories and Tall Tales of the Springfield Quadrangle

SPRINGFIELD, MAThe Springfield Museums presents True Stories and Tall Tales of the Springfield Quadrangle, Saturday, October 23, with tours starting at 5:30 and at 7:30. The cost is $10 for general public and $3 for members of the Springfield Museums.

During this outdoor-only event Museums staff will regale you with famous, mysterious, and sometimes-true stories of the Quadrangle and the five museums on our campus.

“One of your guides is trustworthy and knowledgeable, and will stick to the well-documented history of the Museums,” said Jenny Powers, Family Engagement Coordinator. “Beware what you hear from your other guide; she may make up some stories along the way.”

This tour will give folks plenty to talk about! Tour participants will learn about the Museums’ origins, first collections, and the dreams that made Springfield Museums a reality today. They will also learn interesting facts about each building. But perhaps the most important thing visitors will learn, is a few great tall tales to share while trick or treating on Halloween!

“Sharing stories is one of the most enjoyable ways we have to connect with one another and with our surroundings,” said Clarissa Leverich, Membership Coordinator. “And, well, most people do love a tall tale, especially with lots of embellishment.”

Each participant will receive a souvenir, Museums branded flashlight to bring along on the tour. This program is recommended for visitors 10 and up.
