Self-Guided Tours & Time-Travel Workshops

 

Thanksgiving: From Festival to Feast
Tuesday, November 17, 2015
Recommended for ages 5-12
Time: 12:30 – 3:00

Trace the evolution of Thanksgiving from the Puritans’ holy day of thanks to today’s family feast and homecoming. In this active, fast-paced, and multi-sensory program, you’ll discover how Thanksgiving transcended time, place and culture to become the uniquely American holiday we celebrate today. Try some old-fashioned cooking, create harvest crafts, and talk with costumed roleplayers. In small groups guided by a museum educator, find the common themes of this holiday over three centuries: charity, survival, gratitude, national identity, and the celebration of family and community.

 

Price: $12 per child (5+) and $8.00 per adult
