19th Century Games with the Genesee Country Moveable Museum In-Person

In celebration of the Town of Chili Bicentennial, the Chili Public Library is sponsoring six Genesee Country Museum Moveable Museum programs to be held throughout the year at the Chili Community Center. The Museum educators bring touchable, usable objects to inform those present about the customs and activities of the 19th century. Each programs last 45-60 minutes.

For Preschool-Grade 12 and adult groups

Who doesn’t love playing with the simple toys of the past? Children are encouraged to try jackstraws, cup-and-ball, the whimmy-diddle, buzz saw, and much more. The program also provides topics for discussion about resource use, the purpose of play, and comparisons between past and present life.

Registration is required and begins July 16.
