    Explore 18th century science with Project Englightenment!
    Visit the Apothecary and discover curious objects, from poison bottles to dragon’s blood, and find out how they were used – and if they worked! During these hour-long tours, Project Enlightenment, McLean High School’s historical-reenactment society, will conduct 18th century scientific demonstrations which are certain to expand visitors’ knowledge about science in the 1700s. Tours will be held between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., and are recommended for 3rd grade and older.
