Shiloh Summer Series

Winding Through the Ozarks

The Shiloh Museum’s 2024 Shiloh Summer Series, titled Winding Through the Ozarks, features a string of family-friendly activities tied to themes of our latest exhibits, Tracing the Threads: Weaving in the Arkansas Ozarks and Ozark Tree Army: The CCC at Devil’s Den State Park!

We also invite you to be On the Move with Shiloh by exploring our area’s natural sites and community spaces between May 15 through July 31. Take a selfie and publish it to Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #shilohsummerseries. Afterward, swing by the Shiloh Museum and share your tagged photo or, if you’d rather stay offline, share your experience (a memory or something you learned, for example) for a free Shiloh Museum magnet or sticker (while supplies last)! A list of the locations can be found here.
