Sunday FUNday - Bonnets and Breeches

Description

Children in the nineteenth century had much different lives than children in the twenty first century. Kids were not allowed to be kids. There was very little or no time at all for playing or being silly. They were expected to be seen and not heard. Kids can spend the afternoon dressing up like Victorian children and have their photos taken by the Museum! Sunday FUNdays are held on the first Sunday of the month. Admission is free and allows you to interact with Museum staff and its collection. 12 - 4 pm in the Verna Conant Gallery at Guy House.
