The Chester County History Center offers a variety of festivities available throughout this weekend and the days following for visitors to enjoy.
Festive Family Fun Day
Saturday, 12/10 at 10 AM—1PM
‘Tis the season for creating wonderful crafts to give as gifts or hang in a special place at home. CCHC staff will guide visitors through the history and meaning of historic crafts —like tin punching— and children can make their own unique treasure to keep for themselves, or gift to a loved one.
Tickets include all-day access to the museum and members are free, but registration is required to reserve enough supplies. Both children and adults must have a ticket to enter.
All children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Activities are ongoing so families can stop by at any point between 10 AM and 1 PM and still enjoy every activity. Best for ages 7-13.
