About twice a month, the Virginia Historical Society hosts a program for families with younger children called “Stories at the Museum.” A history-themed book is read to the kiddos and then they get to do some related crafts. And just like admission, this session is offered for free!
Tomorrow the museum is hosting one of these events at 11 a.m. The museum is located at 428 North Boulevard, Richmond, Virginia 23220 (right next to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts).
While you’re there, take a look around. They have some wonderful exhibits that my girls and I toured over the summer. The Story of Virginia exhibition was our favorite by far!
The museum is also a great source for genealogy research with many maps, manuscripts, and books that might aid you in your family history research.
