Saturday Family Workshops Back in Session at the Museum
Just in time for the new school year, The National WWII Museum’s Saturday Family Workshops have returned for the Fall 2014 season! Family Workshops take place each month on a designated Saturday, featuring a central WWII theme or lesson for both children and adults to explore together.
Our first Family Workshop of the Fall, on Saturday, September 20, is our ever-popular Code School. During Code School, participants will explore the history of secret codes and deception as well as the vital importance played by real WWII spies, code-breakers and intelligence officers. In Code School, participants will learn to write in five secret code languages, send and translate Morse code, test their lie detection abilities and experiment with different recipes for invisible ink.
Designed as both fun and educational for children ages 8 – 12 and their parents or guardians, each Family Workshop is 90 minutes in duration, beginning at 10:00 AM and concluding at 11:30 AM. Family Workshop costs are $9 per child and FREE for Museum members. Regular Museum admission applies for families who wish to spend the day at the Museum. Discount for attendees available onsite.
In all of the Museum’s Family Workshops, space is limited so don’t delay!
