While the Littleton Museum was closed to the public due to public health conditions, we created several ways for you and your family to enjoy the museum at home!
In addition to the programs and projects listed below, you can also use the navigation panel to the left to find word puzzles and pioneer pantry recipes.

Hidden Histories of Objects Posts
Did you know the Littleton Museum has an estimated 50,000+ artifacts in its collection? Like most museums, we can’t display all our objects all of the time. Similar to the Throw Back Thursdays and Little Prompts projects, we’ll post an artifact on Facebook and Instagram weekly, exploring the hidden history behind the artifact, and why it is part of the Littleton Museum’s collection!
Throw Back Thursdays
Every Thursday, the Communications Department and Littleton Museum will post to Facebook and Twitter historic photos from the museum’s collections. Photos for April into May will focus on all the front line and essential businesses and staff, like grocery stores, medical personnel, etc.
