Editor's Pick: 

Visit Sunnyside to travel back to the 19th century and explore the home of Washington Irving through a child’s eyes.

Challenge your child to imagine life before electronics as they try walking on stilts and playing colonial-era games. They're sure to enjoy trying on period clothing and can also hear stories, do crafts and participate in other hands-on-activities. Take a tour of the house as well and interact with docents dressed in period attire. Bring a picnic lunch and make a day of it.

Themes and activities vary each week.

For the games and other activities only, a reservation is not required. However, the house tours (offered at 10:30am, 11:30am, 1:30pm, 2:30pm and 3:30pm) sell out, so advance booking is suggested. There's enough to do even without the house tour, so budget your time accordingly.
