One Sunday of the month, the Neill-Cochran House Museum opens its doors to feature hands-on activities, scavenger hunts, self-paced tours, and space to picnic in the shade.

Long before one could pick up a tablet and conjure a streaming video at the touch of a finger, the pop-up book was a popular sensation, engaging the imagination in a way that flat images and text never could. By designing and building their own pop-ups, visitors will get to think a little bit about the know-how it took to bring these familiar childhood books into their homes and lives – and create something for their valentine, too.

There will be examples of a different ways of creating a pop-up image along with all the materials and decorating supplies visitors will need. Staff and volunteers will be available to help with designs and pop-up card making, and they’ll also have pre-made pop-ups that younger kids (or anyone so inclined) can decorate.
