On Sunday, April 23rd, the Trenton City Museum will be hosting a spring family photoshoot. This free event is generously brought to you by the Williamson family of Trenton. From 1-4pm, guests are invited to the Ellarslie Mansion for an afternoon of photographic fun. Children, who must be accompanied by an adult, are encouraged to come dressed in their finest frocks for the day’s festivities. You’ll have access to a spring-themed hall as a beautiful backdrop to your photos, guaranteeing memorable snapshots you and your family will enjoy for years to come. If you plan on attending, you can register online here: Register – Family Photo Shoot.

Once your photoshoot is complete, the fun doesn’t stop there. You’ll need somewhere to display these newfound family keepsakes, and what better place than a DIY photo frame to show off your beautiful new photos? After your photoshoot, guests are invited to make an eye-catching photo frame from popsicle sticks. These colorful frames, made all the more beautiful by your new family portrait, is certain to be a heartwarming memory of springtime for every member of your family.

This event is part of the many celebrations the Trenton Museum Society has planned for its 50th anniversary. For half a century, the Trenton Museum Society has been a source of culture, arts, and fun for families all throughout the Capital City. Their extensive collection of Trenton memorabilia, artifacts, and more are a key component in preserving and uplifting the city’s rich history. Since the Ellarslie Mansion opened its doors as the Trenton City Museum over 40 years ago, the property has become synonymous with the celebration of all things Trenton.

As the only museum solely dedicated to Trenton, the Trenton City Museum plays an important role in sharing the city’s history to the next generation. Through fun, family-friendly events like the upcoming spring photo shoot, local families have the opportunity to engage this resource in a meaningful way, introducing them to a world of discovery in the process.
