Wave Hill is reintroducing armor to Armor Hall, the magnificent space built by Bashford Dean, a scholar, scientist and first curator of the Metropolitan Museum’s collection of arms and armor. Armor Hall was completed in 1927. Learn about chivalry, and how armor is made, watch fencing demonstrations, make brass rubbings and immerse yourself altogether in the knightly world. Singing juggler John Grimaldi adds to the medieval entertainment.

Ages 8 and older welcome with an adult.
