FREE Fun Saturday
To celebrate the arrival of the new Boca Raton Brightline Station, on the first Saturday of every month The Schmidt Boca Raton History Museum is offering FREE Fun Saturday, waiving the regular admission fee ($12 adults, $8 students and seniors, free for members and children 4 years old and under) for all visitors from 10 am to 4 pm.
Fun activities on February 4 will include a special Valentine's Day craft project for kids under the direction of local artist/teacher Michelle Sherman, starting at 2 pm. Celebrated for her watercolor paintings, acrylic paintings, portraits and commissions, Sherman's most recent watercolor series is called Windows into Boca Raton. She promises her hands-on Valentine's Day project for kids will be fun "and not too messy."
Whether people of all ages come in a car or on Brightline or by walking, FREE Fun Saturday is the perfect no-cost opportunity to enjoy the museum's exciting and interactive exhibits that document the growth and development of Boca Raton from a small farming town to the sophisticated internationally known city it is today.

MiMo in Boca Raton:
Mid Century Modern and the Architecture of Howard McCall
This new temporary exhibition takes a look back at the works of longtime local architect Howard McCall whose commercial and residential works helped shape the modern city of Boca Raton. McCall opened his office in Boca Raton in 1958 and was joined by partner Pat Lynch in the 1960s. McCall was responsible for many different structures comprising many styles over many decades in Boca Raton. St. Gregory's Church, the "Church on the Hill" and Advent Lutheran are amongst the dramatic houses of worship he created. He also developed the first Fifth Avenue Shops, local gas stations, many commercial buildings, and lots of midcentury condos.
