It’s Monday. Take a Nap.

Yes, it happened again. We planned an outing for a Monday, and when we arrived, we were met by locked doors.

That’s our car. The only one in the parking lot of the Appleton Museum. As we pulled in, I asked, “Did we do it again? Is the Appleton closed on Monday?”

A quick check of their website confirmed what we already knew. The Appleton Museum hours:

Tuesday-Saturday 10:00-5:00

Sunday 12:00-5:00

We were out of luck.

We decided to do as the banners in the parking lot suggested: Be Inspired by the art displayed in the outdoors space.

image

Connect with the whimsy of childhood memories.

image

Celebrate the beautiful, sunny day.

image

Create a plan for a return visit.

To explore not only the creations made of reused water bottles.

Or of the Fancy Free sculptures made of Crepe Myrtle and Elm saplings, but also of the more traditional artwork on display inside.

Maybe we’ll learn our lesson. Check schedules before making plans, especially on Monday when restaurants and museums are frequently closed. In fact, you may be better off taking a nap on Mondays.

Appleton Museum…we’ll be back in the fall.
