Drop in to construct your own Native American village and English settler homestead from the 17th century in this interactive program for adults and kids. Your creatively crafted dioramas is then used to consider how both groups of people lived, examine the differences and similarities in their lifeways, and how this impacted the relationship between the two communities. Examine real Native American and settler artifacts before exploring the museum and the grounds. This imaginative, 30-minute activity is for kids 5+ and is best when accompanied by an adult or older teen.
