Included in standard admission, this weekend Coggeshall Farm Museum will be exploring American folk art and folklore stories of the 18th century, and how it has affected American art and culture today. Events include discussions about American Folk Art, Sea Shanties & Worksong, American Folk Heroes, New England Legends and Cryptids, and live storytelling of classic American folk stories such as Paul Bunyan.
Events in June specifically for kids:
In this recurring class series, preschool aged kids (2-5 years) and their adults will explore different aspects of the museum such as gardening or livestock, along with singing songs, listening to stories and playing games. Each class is different, so feel free to come to one or all! These classes are included in the standard price of admission.
Each week, kids of all ages will be able to help museum staff with tasks in the garden, including weeding, watering, planting, harvesting and composting! While doing these activities, kids will also learn about gardening and botany from both the 18th century and today. These sessions are included in the standard price of admissions.
