I SPY! 
Each Saturday June - August, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Berman Museum           

The simple kid’s game we have all played can be fun for the entire family!  Many objects on exhibit were acquired when Col. & Mrs. Berman were in WWII and involved in military espionage. The collection includes many combination and spy weapons acquired by the Bermans. WWII was an era of clandestine operations, double agents and cryptology. Even though it is fun to think of the intrigue and mystery we often see in the movies, espionage is a very serious and sometimes deadly business. 

Each Saturday from 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM, beginning in June through the end of August you will have the chance to use your best spy techniques to find Berman Museum Interpreter Chris Williamson and discover what new and intriguing object he has brought up from the Museum vault.

To make things fun, follow the clues on Berman Museum Facebook each week to  determine what Museum Gallery you think Chris will be in and if you can figure out what  object he will be showing. Then visit Berman Museum each Saturday to see these amazing historic objects and learn more about their history.  

Activity included in admission. Members are free.
