April 1, 2024: Another great month of entertaining education at the Holland Museum

On Monday, April 8th the Holland Museum holds its monthly Free Monday event. Open from 4:00pm-7pm with Free admission for all visitors. This will be the last day to view the current exhibit, Newsflash! The Story of Journalism in Holland. The exhibit reflects on the history of local media outlets including the Holland Sentinel and WHTC. It also explores the evolution of journalism and the important role it has played in the development of the City of Holland.

Thursday April 11, the Museum hosts a free virtual Tales from the Archives presentation at 7pm. entitled, Restoring the Cappon House: A Dutch American Time Capsule. In the early 2000’s, the Holland Museum embarked on a decade long process of comprehensively restoring the exterior and interior of the Cappon House to its 1902 appearance. Join Joel Lefever, former Holland Museum President, and Curator as he reminisces about the process. Originally from Illinois, Joel Lefever received his B. A. from Hope College and his M. A. from the Cooperstown Graduate Program in New York. Starting in 1994, he served as Curator of the Holland Historical Trust in Michigan and was named President in 2005. While in Holland, he oversaw the restoration of the 1867 Settlers House and 1874 Cappon House Museums, and the creation of the Dutch history and art galleries of the Holland Museum.

Join the Museum on April 18th for the return of their popular History Mystery Trivia Night Fundraiser. Attendees will participate in a friendly trivia competition and while doing so raise funds for the educational initiatives of the Holland Museum. Tables of eight compete as teams in three rounds of trivia. There will be dinner, drinks, and chances to win a variety of prizes. Attendees will receive updates on the Museum’s impact and information about future programing. The evening’s Master of Ceremonies is Holland City Mayor, Nathan Bocks. There is no ticket cost to attend, but the hope is that participants are moved by the impact of the Museum, and its mission and provide a financial donation in support of the non-profit organization.

RSVP’s required by April 5th.
