    A Vacation Week Family Program Come to the Jackson Homestead for a hands-on approach to trace how projected still images went to animated feature length films. You can check out an authentic Magic Lantern, use old-fashioned stereoscopes, and make your own zoetrope to take home! Learn about the art and history of movie technology in the 19th and 20th centuries. Finish your journey with a short film and popcorn! Cost: $25 per family ($20 for members) includes museum admission, materials, and snack. Prepaid registration is required, limit 25; call 617.796.1450 to register.
