19th-Century Games (in-classroom)

We bring the museum to you! Geared for grades 1 – 12 and adults. Guided by a costumed museum educator, students play with jackstraws, cup-and-ball, the whimmy-diddle, buzz saw, and much more. Those who like a challenge can try to identify the strategies involved in each game and the physics principles that underlie each toy. The program also provides topics for discussion about resource use, the purpose of play, and comparisons between past and present life.
