Living History Days at the Presidio Museum
October 10, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm| $3 - $14
The Presidio San Agustín del Tucson Museum (Presidio Museum) will host the first of its monthly Living History Days on Saturday, Oct. 10, from 10 am – 3 pm.
The Presidio will come alive with demonstrations of children’s games, candle making, storytelling and fresh baked bread to sample. Soldiers will go through their drills and fire a four-pound bronze cannon, a replica of cannons used at the Presidio in the late 1700s. Visitors will have the opportunity to churn butter, pump the bellows of the blacksmith’s forge, spin cotton and learn how the soldiers fire their muskets. The new exhibit “Shaman to Surgeon: Military Medicine in the Southwest” will also be unveiled, and an exhibit reception and discussion with the exhibit curators will occur at 11 am.
Admission to Living History Days is included in the $3 admission to the Museum. Children 14 and under and Presidio Trust members are free. Living History Days are held every second Saturday from 10 am – 3 pm each month from October through April. The Dec. 12 event is Living History Luminaria Night, and is held from 6-9 pm.
