Summer Camp Museum tours are designed as interactive experiences
that encourage children to examine objects and ideas through a variety of
exciting activities. Campers will enjoy the Museum’s engaging tours, hands-on
activities, and stories tailored to their age-group. They will have the chance
to re-live a pioneer’s journey in the Wagon on the Oregon Trail, learn about the
entrepreneur who made blue jeans more durable, and discover why jeans are often
called Levi’s. They will put themselves in the shoes of new immigrants and take
an immigration entrance test at the interactive computer featuring a “real”
Ellis Island inspector. They can also watch a comedy clip in a vintage movie
theater or lounge in an early suburban living room with a TV set that has no
remote control! Or they can bunk in our summer camps gallery, where they might
even find their own camp pictures!
You may submit these pictures in advance. Go to http://camp.nmajh.org.
