History Detectives

There are many mysteries that have remained unsolved for hundreds of years. Each program will begin with background about the mystery. Throughout the program new discoveries will be made! At the end we will come to our own conclusions on what we think happened. This program is geared to older children who have a good grasp on reading and comprehension.
Please register for the event by contacting Museum Educator Alyssa McQuirns at alyssa@schwenkfelder.com or call her at 215-679-3103. Cost is $3 per child.
