Storrowton Village, Summer Saturdays
August 10 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Saturday, repeating until August 17, 2019
The Village is having special Saturday programming this summer called Storrowton Saturdays. Themed days all include hands-on activities, spotlights from the museum’s collections and archives, plus modern day takeaways to try at home.
Invention Day – August 10 from 11-3pm
So many things we use today were created in the 19th century! This STEM-inspired day looks at what they are, how they were made and even some of the young inventors who came up with the ideas. Engage problem-solving and teamwork skills in new and exciting ways, like boat races and a marshmallow catapult contest.
Equine Day – August 17 from 11-3pm
This day celebrates all things horses, those wonderful animals that gallop and neigh their way into our hearts and imaginations. Hear about the role horses played in New England, visit the blacksmith shop to see how horseshoes are made, and maybe even meet a new four-legged friend! Yoga in the Barn from 11-12pm.
