The Nebraska History Museum is excited to offer a round of fun and educational camps this summer. There's no better way for your children to go beyond the textbook and get a fun hands-on historical education while school is out.
Spend a day like a pioneer child. Bring a pioneer lunch and wear pioneer clothes. Build a town. Learn to write with a quill pen in a one-room schoolhouse. Play pioneer games and make pioneer toys.
Meet at and tour the Thomas P Kennard House. Practice greetings and introductions, learn etiquette and play games of the Victorian Era (1837-1901). Wear a costume of the era or try on Victorian-era clothing.
Discover the innovative spirit of the pioneers through repurposed materials. Admire early quilts from the museum's collection, make a rag rug or a belt with recycled materials.
Learn about Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, make puppets and role play some of the exciting adventures they experienced.
