As the end of summer quickly approaches, the John Philip Falter Museum is just starting to heat up. This summer has been incredible thus far and we look to continue to build off the momentum of the Passport Program into the fall & holiday months. In July alone, the museum greeted nearly 250 visitors from both near and far. We have been fortunate enough to stamp 208 passports since the start of the program which began May 1st, 2016. We look forward to the many more Passport participants who will be visiting the museum before the program ends on September 30th.
In August, the museum will participate in the Cobblestone festivities. The museum will be open normal hours on Thursday, Friday & Sunday. On Saturday, the day of the parade, the museum will be open after the parade until 5:30 pm.
The museum along with fellow Stone Street Art members, Falls City Library & Arts Center & Christina's Art Gallery, will be hosting an "Art Walk" on Thursday, September 29th. The event will take place in downtown Falls City. Our plans are still in the making, so we will send updates over the coming weeks.

This past weekend (July 28th – July 31st), the museum participated in “Lemonade Days,” a promotion event hosted by the Falls City Area Chamber of Commerce/Main Street. The museum opened Thursday evening from 6 pm – 8 pm to coincide with the event and were thrilled by the number of kids who showed up to brighten the sidewalks in hopes of winning a prize. Check out the photos below to see some of the fun that was had by all!
A special thanks to our helper Brock Caudle who helped organize our giveaways!
The museum is currently featuring John’s Philadelphia studio, his August – November collection of Saturday Evening Post covers as well as Confrontation which features a scene near the mouth of the Nemaha River. Confrontation is on loan from the Library and Community Foundation of Richardson County.
