Bring the family to the historic site for an autumn evening of fun and education. This free event features about 12 educational activity and game stations set up within all three exhibit galleries of the Powerhouse Museum. Fall Rocks is mostly designed to appeal to elementary-aged children and all activities relate to mineral resources, mining and personal recreational safety. Interpretive staff will be available to answer questions about mining and minerals in the Old Lead Belt. Refreshments will be served.
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.
