Where do young children go to have fun and learn more about how the Pilgrims and Wampanoag lived in Colonial times? The Family Discovery Station - where imagination creates the experience!
Here, children get to try on Colonial clothes, pretend to cook in a hearth, and learn how Pilgrim children ate their meals off of trenchers without using a fork. Discover how the Wampanoag built their homes and grew many types of vegetables before the Pilgrims settled here. Do you think catching fish is easy? Learn how the Wampanoag built a weir (a fence made of brush) to trap fish in a river.
Climb aboard the shallop (a small boat), raise the flag, and chart your course on a traverse board (a wooden board used in navigation), just like the one used by the sailors aboard the Mayflower to keep track of their course and speed at sea.
Everything in the Family Discovery Station is designed for children to touch, try on, play with and experience, including games and a puppet theater. And be sure to check the daily activity board for a story hour. The Family Discovery Station is a great way for young children to journey back in time.
