Please join us on February 8th for An Evening at the Museum - a joint fundraiser in support of both our museum and the upcoming Waterford Skateboard Park which will soon be located on the land just west of our building.

There'll be great local food provided by Kerry's St. James Street Eatery (including an amazing chocolate fondue buffet!), plenty of local beer and wine, and live music courtesy of Norfolk's own The Shrubberies.

Tickets ($35/person) and can be purchased in advance at either Kerry's Eatery or the museum, or at the door. Your ticket entitles you to two drink sample tickets. Additional drink tickets can be purchased at the event.

Please note: This is a 19+ event.
