September Museum Meet Up in New Castle








DMA Museum Meet Up at the New Castle Historical Society on September 14th

Please join us for drinks and conversation at our next Museum Meet Up on Thursday, September 14th at 4:00 PM, hosted by the New Castle Historical Society.  


DMA’s Museum Meet Ups are opportunities for museum folks from across the state to gather together for conversation in a casual environment at one of our member sites.

September's Meet Up will be held at The Arsenal, located at the New Castle Historical Society. The Arsenal was built by the federal government in 1809 as relations with England deteriorated. Today the Arsenal is the headquarters for the New Castle Historical Society, and serves as a visitor center and community event space for Historic New Castle.

All DMA events are free for current members. Nonmembers are always welcome, for just a small fee. To become a member, see here for instructions. We hope you're able to join us!​
