Spend your February vacation in the Victorian Era at Wistariahurst Museum. Step back in time with us for an hour-long boredom buster each day! Each activity is $5 and reservations are required. See below for more details on the activities offered: Monday, February 18: Decorated Diaries Each member of the Skinner family kept countless journals, diaries and scrapbooks. Help keep the tradition alive by binding and decorating your own diary and learning a bit more about what was in the heads of the Skinner family. Tuesday, February 19: Build a Bookmark Before Kindles & Nooks there existed books! Often acting as mini-scrapbooks, bookmarks were more than just a placeholder. Join us for story-time and the opportunity to make your own bookmark keepsake. Wednesday, February 20: Historic Hats & Hatboxes First, take a peek at some of the antique hats Wistariahurst has gathered over time in its archives. Then, after being inspired by such ornate headwear, decorate your own miniature hatbox to take home with you! Thursday, February 21: Fancy Fans Become bilingual in the language of the fan with an afternoon at Wistariahurst! Scouts can see some examples of antique fans and then have the chance to decorate their own. Ending the hour of fun is a lesson on the art of communicating with your fan.
