Free with Museum admission. All ages.
Bring the whole family and create poetry together using words from historic accounts. Let old newspapers, documents and advertisements be the inspiration for creative collaborative poetry, either through methods of blackout or collage. Families can also search for objects in the DiMenna Children's History Museum or engage in a family-themed full Museum scavenger hunt. Hunts will be available all day; family art activity will be available from 12-4 pm.
