Museum will host ‘Children’s Craft and Movie Night’


Popcorn! Hot Dogs! Nachos! Candy! Let us take the kids off your hands for a memorable movie night at the museum. Join the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum for an evening of movies and crafts for children in grades 3-8. The event will be held Saturday, July 9 from 5-10 p.m. The evening includes refreshments sponsored by the Natchitoches Historic District Development Commission and FLASH. The program is free, but space is limited and pre-registration is required. Please call (318) 357-2493 to register or email

The program is part of the museum’s “Hometown Teams: How Sports Shape America” exhibit programming. The exhibit captures the stories that unfold on the neighborhood fields and courts, and the underdog heroics, larger-than-life legends, fierce rivalries and gut-wrenching defeats. “Hometown Teams” is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities. Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.
