Mice Tours: Etta Spies with Her Little Eye. Tours will be offered to toddlers from age 3 to 5 and their parents. The purpose of the tours is to introduce toddlers to history through very basic concepts like shapes, sounds, games, tools and jobs. Museum Mascots Murray and Etta are whimsical cartoon mice that will help convey the themes for the tours and provide a little fun. The tours will offer a variety of activities including story time and crafts.
They require that you reserve a spot for your toddler by calling their office Monday-Friday from 10-4 at 770-794-5710. Reserving a spot will allow the staff to have enough items for the crafts.
