This monthly program for toddlers and preschoolers (18 months to five years) engages the youngest visitors in activities that introduce them to history in creative ways. Each Magic Monday has a unique theme and includes a guided exploration of one of the exhibitions, historic houses, or award-winning gardens, as well as demonstrations, arts and crafts projects, and story time.
