β€œArt is the Queen of all sciences communicating knowledge to all the generations of the world.”– Leonardo da Vinci

The Moravians, who founded Salem in 1766, were widely known for their music as well as their trades such as: pottery, cabinetmaking, gunsmithing, silversmithing and tailoring. Music and the arts were interwoven into the daily life of Salem through work, worship and education.

Arts based demonstrations and hands-on activities include:

  • Learn how the printer used wood blocks to print
