Museum apprentices to host lunchtime stories  

(NEW BEDFORD, Mass.) – The New Bedford Whaling Museum’s High School Apprentices invite parents and their children to join them this summer for Lunch Time Story Time.  On Tuesdays July 30, August 6 and August 13 the apprentices will read stories that they created this summer.  Each week several new stories, which feature sea creatures, pets, adventure, friendship, cooperation and other positive themes, will be read by the apprentices.  Once the stories have been read, children can participate in craft activities that relate to those stories.

Lunch Time Story Time takes place from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the Whaling Museum’s Jacobs Family Gallery, beneath our whale skeletons. Stories are geared for ages 4-8. All Lunch Time Story Time programs are free. Regular admission fees apply if you’d like to visit the galleries.

Bring your lunch and let our kids read to your kids!
