Gather up, History Explorers, but be sneaky about it! In this super-secret meeting, join museum staff as we learn about the spies of the Revolution! From shopkeepers to enslaved men who served as double agents, let’s discover who they were and all the ways they operated undercover. We’ll solve some of our own puzzles, uncover some secret messages, and discover why George Washington thought spies were an important part of victory. 

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