Through the Looking Glass: Flashback to a Victorian Summer

Children's Program PosterDaly House Museum’s new children’s summer program, Through the Looking Glass: Flashback to a Victorian Summer will be open for registration, beginning on July 8th, 2015.  The Museum is excited to put on a uniquely Victorian experience for children ages 5-12.

Our new summer program explores what it meant to be a kid before skateboards and iPads! This program demonstrates what it was like to be a child in the Victorian era. This includes how children helped around the house and how they played during their new-found free time. There is a wide variety of crafts and activities that children will love. Participants will go on a tour of the Daly House Museum, followed by a toy making session and outdoor activities.  Children will make crafts that reflect the era’s simplicity and practicality.

Join us in tracing the footsteps of a typical Victorian child, from doing outside chores like laundry and to playing parlour games and acting like the great Sherlock Holmes! Through the Looking Glass: Flashback to a Victorian Summer runs from July 8th, 2015 to August 28, 2015. It runs every Wednesday from 10 am to 1 pm, rain and shine!
