Exhibition Curator Tour: “Playful Pastimes”

August 12 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

Join our curators for a behind the scenes tour of our newest exhibit Playful Pastimes that explores the golden age of “accessible leisure” when everyday folks found themselves with leisure time and extra cash. See how Americans indulged in a variety of fun hobbies and activities from sand and surf to ports, board games, the circus or even bicycle races to name a few. You’ll glimpse unique artifacts from the Museum’s collection including images and artifacts from Westport’s sports teams, a wooden bicycle, an homage to silent film and much more. See the artifacts up close, and learn how this interactive big-top style exhibit came to life. 

Tickets are $10 for nonmembers, free for members. Registration is available below. Tickets are nonrefundable. In the event you must cancel, we will consider your purchase a donation and will happily issue you a donation receipt. 

$10 Free for Museum Members!
