3rd Saturday at Historic Arkansas Museum: Back to School!
August 20 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
We’re going “Back to School” for this month’s 3rd Saturday, exploring education in 1851 Arkansas. Learn your lessons at the schoolhouse, apprentice with a tradesperson to learn a new skill or practice your penmanship as you experience the educational opportunities that were (and for many were not) available in mid-19th century Arkansas.
Along with a variety of hands-on activities you can also discover the thought and skill that went into having a new outfit to wear—and what you would find in an 1851 school lunch.
During 3rd Saturday @ HAM, enjoy extra programming with your historic grounds admission ($2.50 for adults; $1.50 adults 65+; $1 under 18; FREE for members)
