Join in our (virtual) birthday party as we celebrate our fourth birthday and learn about our most famous object: George Washington’s Headquarters Tent! Club members will get to take a trip back in time using our virtual tour of Washington's Tent and learn all about what it was like to live in a tent, even as General of the Continental Army. We’ll meet some of the other people who spent time around the tent, like William Lee, and see if we have what it takes to protect the Commander himself. 

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