Storrowton Village, STEAM Tours

June 17 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Friday and Saturday, repeating until July 23, 2022

STEAM Tours provide an opportunity to share Storrowton Village’s history through the lens of science, technology, engineering, art, and math. The mid-19th century was rich with change, innovation, and the start of industrialization. This tour seeks to bridge between the early days of American industrialization and the fast-paced, tech-heavy world we are in today. STEAM tours last approximately 90 minutes to two hours and are available Fridays and Saturdays on the hour at 10AM – 3PM from June 15 through July 23.

Visitors will learn about innovations used in each of the unique buildings in the museum and engage in three hands-on activities throughout the tour. This tour is targeted to ages 6-12, however all ages are welcome. Activities vary by season and availability of supplies, examples of activities include making mini catapults, sun prints, kaleidoscopes, drop spindles, beeswax candles, paper corn husk dolls, harmonicas, sundials, and more!

STEAM Tours are available rain or shine, though may be rescheduled in extreme weather conditions. Not all spaces are wheelchair accessible and visitors should wear comfortable walking shoes as the tour encompasses visits to six historic buildings as well as gardens (seasonally).

Children must be accompanied by an adult and a discounted rate for parents/chaperones is offered; parent/chaperone admission does not include activities. Parent/Chaperone rate is only valid along with a minimum of one (1) STEAM Tour Admission $12.00.

Same-day tour tickets can be purchased in-person at the Museum Gift Shop. Contact us at 413.205.5051 or [email protected] with questions.
