Family Field Trip: Creativity & Crafts

August 14, 2022, 11:30 am – 12:15 pm

Family Field Trip: Creativity & Crafts

Included with standard admission, subject to availability.

On the second Sunday of every month at 11:30 am, join Eastern State's education team for a journey through the history of creativity at the penitentiary.

This month, let’s get creative! Learn more about creativity at Eastern State and in prisons today. Talk about crafts made by people incarcerated at Eastern State like jewelry, wallets, figurines, and more. Then, make your own piece of jewelry to wear home.

Family Field Trips are open to all, but are designed with children ages 8-13 and their caregivers in mind. This program lasts 45 minutes. Family Field Trips are included with standard admission to the historic site, subject to availability. Daytime tour tickets can be purchased online in advance or at the door. Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start time, and ask a staff member to direct you to the meeting point.
