Workshops & Focus Tours

Workshops offer an intensive hands-on history experience, with a visit to the furnished buildings that fit the theme. Offered primarily during January, February, and March, workshops may also be available for selected days in other seasons. Because of the popularity of these programs, please book as early as possible.  Students explore historic buildings with recreated period interiors. Museum educators, costumed in period clothing, introduce household items and historical documents to help students experience the past in a real and meaningful way. Through this immersive journey, history, economics, civics, and geography come alive at a true living history village.
