For Fall 2023, we are offering three of our best loved programs. Each of these programs has sold out every time we have offered it!
Wednesday, September 20. Little Women: Classic and Contemporary. Ages 5-12. Literature and history. Lyman Estate, Waltham, Mass. The new film adaptation, partially filmed at the Lyman Estate, has brought fresh attention to Louisa May Alcott’s timeless classic. Hands-on activities described in the book and depicted in the film will bring the March sisters’ world to life.
Monday, October 23. Dirt Detectives. Ages 5-14. Archaeology. Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm, Newbury, Mass. October is Massachusetts Archaeology Month! Participants become archaeologists as they excavate a mock pit with actual tools of the trade and process reproduction artifacts in a field lab. Inside the museum, they explore building archaeology via trap doors. They analyze objects to learn about daily life at the farm over the last 300 years.
Tuesday, December 5 and Wednesday, December 6. Deck the Halls: A Celebration of Christmas. Ages 5-14. Holiday. Eustis Estate, Milton, Mass. Many of the Christmas customs we take for granted today were invented or popularized during Victorian times and were flourishing when the Eustis Estate was built in 1878. We invite you to get comfortable in the lavishly decorated mansion while creating a variety of holiday crafts and enjoying seasonal refreshments. Don’t forget to check under the tree for something to take home! Please note: Due to the cost of materials, this program is $30 members/$40 nonmembers.
