Instead of doing Children's Workshops this year, we will be hosting Hands-On History! These programs will allow children to experience the topic of the day in a tangible way. Programs will be occurring once during the day and then again after-school. The cost is $7 per child. Please register your child by contacting Museum Educator Alyssa McQuirns at 215-679-3103 or by email, alyssa@schwenkfelder.com.

Examining Our Past: History Club

Do you have a child interested in history? Then have them join our history club! We will be meeting once a month to discuss different topics in a fun, engaging way. It will also be a time for students to study and refresh some aspects of history. This could be the perfect club for your child to delve deeper into their interest or to prepare for an upcoming test! This club is geared toward older students. Cost is $3 per child. If you have any questions or if you would like to register your child, please contact Museum Educator Alyssa McQuirns at 215-679-3103 or alyssa@schwenkfelder.com
