One of our favorite parts! Besides seeing original documents in person our favorite part was the hands-on activity available. There is an interactive room where children are able to wear special gloves and white coats and interact with child-friendly archives, really peeking into the experience of an archivist. I truly believe this experience gave us all an appreciation for the work of preserving history! Absolutely recommend!
