Did you know that colonial people experimented with science every day? From making butter, to getting water from the well, to dyeing their clothes, every day was Science Day. Join us on the farm to conduct your own scientific experiments--dye a piece of fabric using plants from our garden; churn butter and discover how baking is like chemistry; create and use simple machines to perform chores, learn how to harness a horse, make cider and more! The hours for this event are 11:00 am until 4:00 pm with last admittance at 2:30 pm.

In order to ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors, we have modified our operations in response to COVID-19 and we invite you to review the details below to help you plan your visit.

Pre-Registration Required
In order to ensure that visitors have the space needed for proper social distancing, we are requiring pre-purchased tickets. We are allotting tickets into half-hour time slots, with eight individuals permitted to enter per half hour. Please try to arrive on time for your admission; we cannot guarantee that we can accommodate a later start time. No one will be admitted after 2:30 pm.

During Your Visit

Please be advised, effective June 1st-Masks for visitors are not required for those fully vaccinated. Unvaccinated guests are required to wear masks indoors and outdoors in accordance with Park rules.

Before You Leave Your House, please remember to bring your:
--Proof of your pre-registration. Printed tickets recommended but you can also show your ticket on your cell phone.
--Valid 2021 Calendar Year Membership Card (if registering as a member)
