The South Dakota Agricultural Heritage Museum is partnering with the South Dakota Art Museum for a morning filled with Valentine’s Day themed crafts, activities and more. This event is free and open to the public including SDSU students, faculty and staff. Even if you don’t have kids, younger siblings, a date or any other person you can use as an excuse to get out of the house on Valentine’s Day, you can take yourself out on a fun little excursion to the museums!

Agricultural Heritage Museum

“We are co-hosting this event-filled day with the art museum, and we’ll both have a few different crafts and activities spread around the gallery,” Sarah Jacobs, the Agricultural Heritage Museum’s education coordinator, said. “As far as the Ag Museum’s activities go, we will have a station where folks can make farm animal valentines and Valentine’s scratchers. We will also have a lineup of games throughout the day!”

Art Museum

“There’s a variety of craft activities that are in kits that people can create here at the Art Museum on Family Fun Day,” Donna Merkt, South Dakota Art Museum director, said. “If families prefer to have them made at home, they can take the kits to go as well. We will have puzzles, games and a full scavenger hunt at the art museum for anybody who would like to join us. Galleries are open and free as usual this Saturday, so we hope to see families and crafty students stopping in.”
