At Old Salem Museums & Gardens, history comes alive during our hands-on activities:
- Experience life as a resident two hundred years ago.
- Refine your manners during a 19th century deportment lesson or learn a little French, German and Latin, just like school children in Salem.
- Try your hand at the German art form of Scherenschnitte, an intricate paper-cutting craft or create your own beautiful botanical watercolor painting.
- Get the chance to write with a quill pen or play games on the square.
Explore these and many other historically based activities during your visit to Old Salem Museums & Gardens.
Scheduled hands-on activities may vary. Hands-on activities are available to school tour groups upon request during the months of January and February.
