Join us for an interactive History Explorer Meet-Up where you’ll enlist in the Continental Army and decide what you’re going to take with you in your haversack, like a Revolutionary-era backpack! In most soldiers’ packs, they would carry most of their equipment, including blankets, utensils, extra clothing, toys, and maybe a memory from home. Pick and choose what you think would be the most important things to take with you using the Museum’s own hands-on replica objects and try your best to march with them! Will you be able to carry it all, or will you have to choose to leave something behind?

Kids are invited to take the lead in this interactive, hands-on program, which runs for about 20 minutes and takes place in the Museum's Robert A. M. Stern Rotunda. This History Explorer Meet-Up is great for kids 7-11 but open to kids of any age.
