Come to Van Cortlandt House Museum on Saturday, September 22 as we celebrate the history and culture of New York and the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum Day Live. The History and Culture Fair will feature a range of activities for all ages.
There will be themed self-guided tours of the house throughout the day. Out on the grounds of the museum you'll find craftsmen and living historians demonstrating wood working, open hearth cooking, weaving, and military drill. You'll also be able to "enlist" in General Washington's Army and learn how to march with a pretend musket.

Refreshments and souvenirs will be sold to benefit Van Cortlandt House Museum.
The program will be held rain or shine.
