The McCrary Sisters will headline the museum’s inaugural Easter Brunch on Sunday, March 27, 2016. Family-style seatings will be available at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. and will be held in the museum’s Event Hall. As daughters of longtime Fairfield Four tenor Rev. Samuel McCrary, the McCrary Sisters – Alfreda, Ann, Deborah and Regina – each bring a unique energy and varied experiences from the worlds of pop, rock, R&B and gospel music.

Diners will enjoy a performance by the McCrary Sisters and meal prepared by museum executive chef, Bobby Hammock. Brunch will include fresh waffles and scrambled eggs made to order, apple cider brined pork, braised Swiss steaks, mushroom and herb stuffed chicken breast, shrimp and lobster Newburg and much more.

The Easter Bunny will be on hand for free photos! Brunch tickets will also include entry to the museum and are $60 for adults, $25 for kids 6-12 and free for kids 5 and under. Ticket price includes gratuity and tax.
