Program Type

Museum Led Program led by Museum staff or volunteers.


During this two-hour program, WDM volunteers and staff will bring the Museum alive, inside and out, with demonstrations, interpretations, displays and activities. Students, accompanied by a chaperone/teacher, may try their hand at different heritage skills under the direction of WDM staff and volunteers. Teachers/Chaperones will be provided with a map showing where activities will be taking place.

Students may try their hand at making a rope, turning wheat into flour, writing with a nib pen and ink, washing clothes on a scrub board and squeezing them through a hand-turned wringer, pumping water and more. They may even watch a blacksmith shape a red hot iron rod into a utensil. All activities are intended to give students an idea of what it was like to live 100 years ago.
