If you have a child 8-12 years old, maybe a history buff in the making, this could be a great bonding evening with them. The York County Heritage Trust is sponsoring a family overnight, or Night At The Museum, April 17-18. The theme this year is Revolutionary Era Pennsylvania and you and your child/children will spend the night learning what it was like living in York during the 18th century by visiting and doing hands-on exploration at The Gates House, Plough Tavern, the Colonial Court House and The Bobb Log House. If you know me than you know that this is an event right up my alley, of course my 3 year old won't qualify me, but in 5 years I'm so there!
If this sounds like a fun night for your family be sure and reserve your spot now, this event sells out every year. I couldn't find the information about the overnight on the YCHT website, but you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the Coordinator of Educational Programming at 717-845-2951. If you are a YCHT member the cost is $7 for adults and $17 for kids, non-members $10 for adults and $20 for kids. York played a big role in American history wouldn't it be great to share that with your kids? Have Fun!
