A young female visitor draws a picture. Behind her is a 13-star flag, which was part of the Museum's 2019 summer exhibition, A New Constellation.

Flags were everywhere during the American Revolution. Join in as we learn about how flags were used to communicate with ships, how they were used by privateers to trick the enemy, and what a flag can tell us about how a country sees itself. Then we’ll use what we know about flags to each create one of our own!

History Explorers Club playdates are best enjoyed by ages 7-11 but fun for all kids.
