Root Beer Float Day

Cheers to Frank Wisner who is widely credited with creating the root beer float! At the end of the 19th century he looked up at Colorado’s Cow Mountain and found inspiration in the snowy peaks that resembled ice cream floating in soda. Soon after he combined root beer with vanilla ice cream for a frothy, creamy beverage. On Saturday, August 3rd The Durham Museum celebrates this delicious treat with a free 8oz. root beer float for each guest when they visit the Soda Fountain from 10am-5pm. Regular museum admission applies.
