Holding History: What makes an object “historical?” Why do museums keep objects behind glass?
Children will ponder these question while being able to physically hold, touch, and feel historical artifacts from our collection. They will learn about the history of those objects through this tactical investigation and by relating these historical artifacts to their own lives. Free with museum admission. 11 am. Brooklyn Children’s Museum, 145 Brooklyn Ave. at St. Marks Avenue, (718) 735-4400, www.brooklynkids.org
