Admission is free and registration is not required.  Light refreshments will be served.  Groups of eight or more should call the Dickson Mounds Museum in advance to ensure the availability of supplies.  The program begins promptly at 9:30 a.m. with the program portion lasting approximately thirty minutes followed by crafts, snacks, and time to explore the Museum.  The 2017 Tot Time program series is sponsored by the City of Lewistown, Doug Dennis of Manito, Havana National Bank and G-M Mechanical of Canton.   If you are interested in becoming a program sponsor, please contact Curator of Education Christa Foster at 309-547-3721.
