Easter Egg Museum Exhibit

It’s time to celebrate spring in Schoharie with the reopening of the Schoharie Easter Egg Museum and a wealth of other egg-vents throughout the month of April. Come see egg-head presidents from George Washington to George W. Bush, clowns and animals in an egg circus, and even The Last Supper with all the disciples made of eggs. Mildred Vrooman spent more than 50 years of her life painting these eggs and putting them into scenes. There are nursery rhymes and stories like the Wizard of Oz, Cinderella, and the Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe. There are also carved eggs, jeweled eggs, mosaic egg pictures and so much more. There is nothing like it.

Museum was last open in 2014, and this year the entire Schoharie community is involved. Schoharie Village is decorated for the egg-vent by local businesses and school and community groups. Many Schoharie restaurants even have egg specials on their menus. A raffle features egg art by local artists. The Schoharie Library has egg-cellent programs including special story-hours each Friday at 10 a.m.:  April 5t, a bunny story; April 12th an egg story; and April 19th a very special STEM story with eggs-periments.  On April 4th at 6:30 p.m. you can attend a fun bedtime reading of The Egg Tree by Katherine Milhous, the story that inspired the creation of the Egg Museum. The Library will also host a PJ and popcorn movie night on April 18th at 6:30 p.m., showing Rise of the Guardians.  A Ukrainian egg decorating demonstration will be held at the Library on April 13th at 10:30 a.m.  Which came first – the chick or the egg? The Cornell Cooperative Extension will share the amazing development of an egg into a chick with a discussion on April 11th at 6:30 p.m., and throughout the Museum opening an incubator in the Library will hatch baby chicks.

The Schoharie Fire Department is eggs-cited to host an Easter Egg Obstacle Relay Course at the Fire House on April 6th, starting at 10 a.m. On April 10th Joseph and Berna Heyman, owners of the Museum, are giving an illustrated lecture on the history of the egg collection at 7 p.m. at the Old Stone Fort.  The Schoharie Promotional Association is hosting an Easter Egg Hunt just across the covered bridge from the Museum, in the Schoharie Lily Park on April 13th at noon.  Also on April 13th, the Old Stone Fort and the Schoharie Colonial Heritage Association are hosting an artisan show and sale, and children’s craft activity.
