"Kids Day at the Museum"
With the Gundalow Company and author Denise Brown
  — at the Museum

Come to the Museum to take a trip through time with the Gundalow Company. Explore the Piscataqua Region with stories, activities and crafts. Using models and maps, learn about the historical role of the Gundalow on our rivers. Take a look at the amazing network of waterways outside our doors and read some books about the river, including life in the waters. Test your skills as a sailor by tying some knots, building your own Gundalow model, and designing plankton.

Local author Denise Brown will be here to read one of her books for children. Denise's books include "USS Albacore Submarine", "A Deer Visits Nubble Lighthouse" and her newest book, "Memorial Bridge Cat".

Children will also be able to play colonial games throughout the Museum. Kids can receive a Museum coloring book and participate in a history hunt while visiting.

Children are free but must be accompanied by an adult (regular admission applies).

We are about Kittery

We seek to create greater awareness of the history of Kittery, its role in American history, and our cultural and maritime heritage. We welcome suggestions for events and exhibits that are consistent with our mission. Thanks for participating in the Museum!
