Family Program: Sensing History

May 6, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm |

Can you show someone a sound? Can you “see” objects without using your eyes? Explore how senses work at Free First Saturday at the Connecticut Historical Society. Try out activities that investigate all the ways we see, hear, and feel the world around us. Try to guess the items in a mystery box using only your sense of touch, test out all the different ways sound travels, and create a sensory portrait of yourself or your favorite things that you can see and touch.

This program is free and open to the public, and great for ages 4 and up. Please note that this program will be presented with American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation. In order to best accommodate our visitors, please email Corinne Swanson at corinne_swanson@chs.org if you need this accommodation. This program is presented in conjunction with our exhibit Language, Culture, Community: 200 Years of Impact by the American School for the Deaf. For more information, call (860) 236-5621 x222 or email corinne_swanson@chs.org. Thanks to Berkshire Bank for their support of this program.

To support the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19, the Connecticut Historical Society will temporarily close now through April 22. We will re-evaluate the situation at that time. All public programs and tours are canceled during this time. We hope to reschedule some of the events if possible.
