Women’s History Month Inspires Museum’s March History Happy Hour Event

March 3, 2022 (Toledo, Ohio) On Thursday, March 3 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., the National Museum of the Great Lakes will host their next History Happy Hour: The Women Who Made the Lakes Great. The event was developed to allow individuals to enjoy happy hour drinks while exploring the museum exhibits after-hours. This time, the event will embrace Women’s History Month by highlighting stories of daring rescues, dangerous shipwrecks, and trailblazing women on the Great Lakes. 

“We love exploring new ways to introduce people to our incredible museum and this time we were inspired by Women’s History Month, ” says Ellen Kennedy, the museum’s Education and Visitor Experience Director at the National Museum of the Great Lakes. “From Native American poet Jane Schoolcraft, to early 19th century Great Lakes captain and Toledoan Grace Waite, to the only female Great Lakes Gold Life Saving Medal Awardee Jean Colby—there are so many wonderful women to celebrate in connection with our Great Lakes.” 

For the first time, the event is also taking place in partnership with EPIC Toledo—the largest young professional organization in the Toledo Region. Tickets are $30 for NMGL and EPIC Toledo members, and they are $35 for non-members. Along with interactive storytelling and afterhour gallery roaming, tickets include light snacks, specialty cocktails created by Toledo Spirits, beer, wine and soft drinks.
