Event Navigation

The Presidio Museum welcomes young children to explore history! Children ages 4 – 8 are invited to visit the Museum for Children’s Adventure Hour, resuming the first Saturday of the month in January and continuing each first Saturday through April. The first of these will be held on January 6, 2018, at 10 am and will also be held Feb. 3, March 3, and April 7 at 10 am.

Join Ms. Pat, who will guide children through a tour of the Presidio Museum designed specifically for them and demonstrate where cochineal comes from (the red-dye that was an important trade commodity for early settlers). The adventure will also include a “daily life” hands-on activity, which could include

  • drawing with natural dyes
  • pot gardening
  • laundry the “old fashioned way”
  • making clay bead bracelets
  • making wool bracelets
  • tortilla making
  • colonial-period games

The program ends with a coloring activity and a story.

The entire program lasts approximately one hour and participants are encouraged to stay and enjoy the Museum as long as they like after the program, which is included in admission. Participants are encouraged to register ahead of time to insure they have a spot at www.TucsonPresidio.com.
