New-York Historical Society Announces February 2013 Family Programs

The DiMenna Children's History Museum at the New-York Historical Society is pleased to offer a large and diverse selection of activities for the whole family in February 2013 designed to make history come alive. This exciting series of programs take place at the DiMenna Children's History Museum-the first-ever children's museum bringing American history to life through the lives and times of children of the past.

February's family program highlights include a history of chocolate demonstration, a book club discussion with an archeologist on the African burial grounds in New York City, a World War II writing workshop co-presented with Writopia Lab, a Spanish-language gallery studio program, and school vacation week programming.

Currently on view at New-York Historical Society are the special exhibitions WWII & NYC, Nature and the American Vision: The Hudson River School, and John Rogers: American Stories.

All New-York Historical Society exhibitions are family-friendly and are the inspiration for the broad range of family learning program offerings.
