Niagara Storywalks®

The Museum is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 5pm.  When you visit the museum you can wander through Redmond Heights and read a book at the same time. 

A StoryWalk® is an opportunity for children to experience reading a book while walking through a park, trail or neighborhood. StoryWalks® promote literacy and outdoor physical activity. Additionally, they foster community involvement and parent engagement. Children of all ages may experience a StoryWalk® with family members or caregivers by following an outdoor path of large, laminated pages from an illustrated story. The pages also contain questions and reading cues to encourage discussion, predictions and to strengthen children’s emergent literacy development. The Niagara Falls History Museum will be installing three separate stories over the summer at the Redmond Heights located beside the Battle Ground Hotel Museum (6137 Lundy’s Lane, Niagara Falls, ON). Stories include Hiawatha and the Peacemaker by Robbie Robertson and David Shannon (May/June), Swirl by Swirl: Spirals in Nature by Joyce Sidman and Beth Krommes (July), and Grumpy Bird by Jeremy Tankard (August).  Join staff at the Museum for crafts following your StoryWalk®. 

This is in partnership with the Niagara Region and the Niagara Falls Public Library.  While onsite, why not take in a Battlefield Tour?  Tours start from the Battle Ground Hotel and start at 2pm.   All of these activities are free.  A great way for the family to spend an afternoon.
