The history, the people and the stories of the Upper Midwest

SPARK!

SPARK! is a monthly program for individuals living with early-to-mid stage memory loss, their care partners, and family members. Participants are engaged in lively conversations, exhibit exploration, object handling, and other multi-sensory activities, and encouraged to make new friends, socialize and learn interesting stories.

SPARK! is held from 2pm-3:30pm on the third Friday of every month at the Civil War Museum.
