Family Day: Direct A Movie, 1860's Style!

Create your very own movie as if you were a director from the 1860’s. People did not have movies like we do today, but they did have zoetropes! Zoetropes are an optical illusion that creates a moving image. Come make your own zoetrope at the Mansion!

This event is FREE with museum admission. Recommended ages 8-14. Advanced registration is encouraged.
