Find out about the American Revolution and backyard archaeology with author Adam Osterweil and explore the New-York Historical Society's collection of artifacts from the American Revolution. Learn how anyone can become a history detective! Ages 9-12.

Venue Description: A trip to New York wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the New-York Historical Society with four centuries of history and art – plus the only Children’s History Museum in the area. It hits the spot for anyone craving an offbeat (and often surprising) bite of the city’s culture easily digested in an hour or two. Quirky, smart, immersive and across the street from beautiful Central Park, it offers a rich taste of the city.
