Game Day (March 28th, 2015)
It wasn’t all work and no play in the 17th century. Scouts can discover the wide array of sports and games played by people living throughout New England in the 1600s. Games helped children develop coordination, reflexes and depth perception – all skills they would need in their adult lives. Try your hand at all sorts of games, and compare them to the games you play today!
All "Game Day" programs are free with Museum Admission.
