Tinker Visions in the Gardens
September 17 4-6pm
Looking for a fun way to support the museum? Join us for our Tinker Visions in the Gardens fundraiser!
Enjoy an evening of fun accompanied by free appetizer pizza from Lino's, with wine and beer available for purchase. There will also be live music from Jesse Fox (part of the RAMY award winning duo "The Lone Canary") and first floor tours of the beautiful Tinker Swiss Cottage.
Funds raised through this event will ensure the continued care of the Cottage. Tinker Swiss Cottage was built in 1865 near the founding site of Rockford by Robert Tinker and was inhabited by the family until 1942. Today it has been restored to its Victorian Era grandeur and offers daily tours, rentals, and educational programing to the Rockford community.
Tickets are $30/person. You can purchase your tickets by calling our office at (815) 964-2424, through our gift shop, on this page via PayPal, or purchase them through EventBrite HERE.
