Spring Break at the Museum

Two hundred and forty years ago, in the spring of 1778, the Continental Army and its followers were preparing to leave Valley Forge and march into an uncertain future. This spring break, join educators everyday at 11:00 am as they demonstrate activities and crafts from the Revolutionary period, including shoemaking, tailoring, fencing, and the work of the men and women who supported the armies.
