3 Things to Do in Historic Bethlehem this Spring

Fed up with this miserable weather? Yearning for sunny skies and flower blossoms? While the weather can’t seem to make up its mind, here are 3 fun things to do in Historic Bethlehem that will brighten your day!

Take a walk through Bethlehem’s storied past at the Time Capsule Bethlehem: Our City Then & Now exhibit open now through August 26 at the Kemerer Museum. Whether you’ve lived here your entire life or you’ve just recently moved to the neighborhood, one thing’s for certain: Bethlehem is a special place with a rich history and a vibrant community. On display across six historic sites, in this exhibit you can make your mark by submitting to the 2018 Community Time Capsule or add your memories to the interactive exhibit timeline.

 

Explore the Kemerer Museum of Decorative Arts for FREE every Sunday from 1-4PM. If you’re looking for a place to spend quality time with the family, look no further. Hosted at Pennsylvania’s only museum dedicated to the decorative arts, enjoy a range of engaging programs and activities like Career Corner, Museum Storytime, and the Family Room, catering to many ages that promote creativity and exploration.

 

Discover colonial crafts this Mother’s Day weekend. Ever wonder how the decorative door hinges you see in Historic Bethlehem were made? Or perhaps how the early Moravians spun the thread for their clothes before machines made it easy? Journey down to the Colonial Industrial Quarter on Saturday, May 12 from 10AM-4PM to experience Bethlehem’s creative roots with historical crafts, hands-on workshops, kid-friendly programs, and much more.
