What would happen if kids took over Gadsby’s Tavern Museum? It would come to life, literally! Between 2 and 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, November 11, visitors touring Gadsby’s Tavern Museum will meet 18th century characters (as portrayed by students) bringing to life the people who visited and worked in this tavern. This event was planned by a team of 5th through 7th grade volunteers as part of the Museum’s Kids Take Over the Museum challenge, where students were given the opportunity to plan and host a museum event of their choice. In honor of Veteran’s Day, the students invite all veterans and active duty military personnel and their families to attend this program for free. Admission otherwise is $5 per adult and $3 per child (ages 5 through 12). Tours will run continuously between 2 and 3:30 p.m.
