Come live, learn and play as children in the 1820s did. Activities at First Missouri State Capitol State Historic Site will include cow milking; butter churning; quill pen writing; candle dipping; baby farm animals; 1820s children's toys and games; hearth cooking; period skills and craft demonstrations; re-enactors in period dress; and open door interpretation of the 1820s Peck Brothers Dry Goods and Hardware Store and Peck's residence.
Also included in the activities will be a performance by Emmy award winning educators and entertainers Jan and George Syrigos, who make up the musical group WildHeart. Their performance is designed to bring the heart of the wild to the heart of the child. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact the historic site at 636-940-3322.
The Museum of Westward Expansion will host the fourth annual Night at the Museum, Saturday, March 22, from 6 p.m.-9 p.m.
Night at the Museum features historical characters dressed in period clothing—from pioneers and mountain men to frontier soldiers—who will share their tales of the settling of the American West and recount what life was like during these early times in American history.
Kids can take part in several Old West-themed activities such as buffalo chip races, building their own branding irons, exploring a tipi, singing songs and learning about keel boat cordelling.
Space is limited and reservations are required. Tickets are $15 per person (children 2 and younger are free) and include a tram ride to the top of the Arch and hot dog dinner. Kids ages 3-15 will receive passes for a future Gateway Arch Riverboat sightseeing cruise.
For reservations and more information, call 877-982-1410 or visit www.gatewayarch.com. Those who purchase their tickets online at http://ticketsforthearch.com will receive free parking at the Gateway Arch Parking Garage.
